Climate bond market surges 20% to $600bn

Dominated by low-carbon transport, the climate bond market has seen a meteoric rise over the last year but only a fraction of this is made up of labelled green bonds

The climate bond market has risen by 20% in the last year to almost $600bn (£390bn), according the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI).

In the CBI’s latest annual report published on 8 July, it states that its total value now stands at $597.7bn, an increase of $95bn since 2014.1.

However, the vast majority of this comprises of unlabelled “climate-aligned bonds” ($531.8bn), while labelled green bonds account for $65.9bn.

Unlabelled climate-aligned bonds use finance for climate solutions but do not carry the green label, which ensures 100% of the bond fits within CBI criteria.
