5 July 2019 – Mumbai, India – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to solving global problems. The new resource is titled “10 Years of Green Bonds: Creating the Blueprint for Sustainability Across Capital Markets”. It is an article that was published on World Bank website in March 2019.

There exists a set of people willing to invest in projects that help the planet. But finding a trustworthy investment partner in green projects is not very easy. The World Bank through its first Green Bonds in 2008, created a new way to connect financing from the investors to the climate change-related projects. It was a historic event and changed the way investors, development experts, policymakers and scientists work together. These bonds paved the way for today’s green bond market. These bonds helped raise awareness for climate change and demonstrated the potential in green investment avenues without compromising on returns.

The article describes the roles played by various stakeholders to make Green Bonds reality. It also gives the details of the capital raised and its disbursement. The ten-year Green Bond report can be found at 10-Year Green Bond Impact Report, accessable from this article. Today the green bond model is replicated across different areas and as a result there are social bonds, blue bonds and many more and can be found at Sustainable Development Bonds.
