The dramatic growth of the green bond market in 2021 has been matched by the growth of green bond funds. But how do we know the bonds are indeed green or just being greenwashed? In the Lonsec Sustainability webinar, we look at what green bonds are, the difference between green issues and green issuers, and how to monitor issuers’ commitments to ensure that the money is actually being allocated towards green assets and projects.
Joining Tony Adams, Head of Sustainable Investment Research at Lonsec Research are Katie House, Partner Sustainability, at Affirmative Investment Management, and Xuan Sheng Ou Yong (Sheng), Green Bonds & ESG Analyst APAC at BNP Paribas Asset Management.
