New survey tips USD1tn green bond milestone for end 2022

RELATED TOPICS​

Green bond investment in a single year could reach the USD1 trillion milestone for the first time by the end of Q4 2022, according to respondents to a new Climate Bonds market survey.

A total of 353 respondents took part drawn from following categories: corporates, asset owners, asset and investment managers, development banks, regulators, ratings and verification service providers.

In a range from 2022 to 2025, Quarter 4 of 2022 was selected by the largest group of respondents (25 per cent) as the quarter when green bond investment would pass USD1trillion for the first time in a single year. Quarter 4 of 2023 (13 per cent), Quarter 2 of 2023 (12 per cent) and Quarter 3 of 2023 (10 per cent) were the next most popular responses.

Sean Kidney, CEO, Climate Bonds Initiative, says: “The long-awaited USD1trillion milestone is now a market reality, whether at the end of 2022 or in 2023. But the climate crisis grows. It’s time to lift our sights and aim higher. USD5 trillion in annual green investment by 2025 must be the new mark for policy makers and global finance to achieve.

“Capital allocation towards clean energy, resilient infrastructure, green transport, buildings and sustainable agriculture needs to accelerate into the multiple trillions, every year, rippling through both developed and emerging economies.

“The climate capital gap still remains. USD5trillion in annual green investment by 2025 is a real economy investment benchmark to judge progress in greening the financial system.”
