Sustainable finance in Asia

A team of ING China and the Sustainable Finance APAC team have worked with the International Institute of Green Finance (IIGF), an influential think tank from China, to publish a report on sustainable finance in Asia. The report was launched in Beijing on 15 September 2019.

Windmills on field

The report, 'Sustainable Finance in Asia: Helping Asian Green Bond Issuers To Access International Capital Markets' is written by Joris Teer and Mathias Lund Larsen of the IIGF, in partnership with Leon Wijnands, global head of Sustainability, and Herry Cho, head Sustainable Finance Asia Pacific at ING.

In order to develop Asia sustainably in line with the goals of Paris Climate Agreement, Asian green bond issuers will have to go global in order to attract sufficient capital. In the report is explained what specific policies could make this reality.
