More institutional investors are incorporating ESG into their stewardship criteria and capital allocation decisions. Green finance – typically global bond, loans, and other long-term markets – has reached almost US$2 trillion in volume.

Annual green bond issuance broke through the half trillion mark for the first time, ending 2021 at US$522.7 billion, a 75% increase on prior year volumes, according to the Climate Bonds Initiative.
