European Investment Bank
European Investment Bank is one of the EU’s primary vehicles for achieving its sustainability goals and is therefore at the vanguard of European and global sustainable debt markets. The supranational tells KangaNews it aims to use this position to provide a blueprint for itself and others to implement ambitious sustainable-finance strategies.
Finding a way to reliably and meaningfully support environmental transition is perhaps the greatest contribution sustainable finance could make to achieving climate goals – and sustainability-linked bonds have been presented as critical tool for doing so. But flatlining issuance highlights what is perhaps the sector’s greatest challenge to date: how to agree, measure and monitor genuine transition ambition.
Some of the world’s leading issuers from the supranational, sovereign and agency sector took part in a virtual discussion about funding conditions and issuance approaches in mid-2023. The borrowers tell KangaNews the Kangaroo market has an increasingly structural role in their funding plans despite ever-changing demand dynamics. The New Zealand market, meanwhile, is facing up to a major regulatory risk event.
