Green bonds

Posted on

I have worked on and off for the creation of green bonds to fund green infrastructure development in the UK for more than eight years, usually with environmentalist and Green New Deal coordinator Colin Hines, who is my partner in Finance for the Future. As a result of this work I am a member of the Climate Bonds Initiative, an informal group of professionals working on this issue from around the world.

Ben Caldecott is another member of that group and he has an article in the Guardian today explaining the importance of Green bonds. I recommend the article to anyone with even the vaguest interest in this issue.
