Navigating the Sustainable Debt Market: Enhancing Credibility in an Evolving Market

An introduction to the trends, challenges, opportunities, and current practices related to sustainable debt instruments

Jun 01, 2022 | Surveys & Reports

Countries around the world are searching for ways to shift capital investments into activities that support the transition to a more sustainable, low-carbon economy. To finance that massive change, investors and regulators are looking to the sustainable debt market as an important vehicle in raising funds to finance projects that advance environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives.

This new, comprehensive study that delves into the challenges and opportunities that exist in the sustainable debt market is the result of a collaborative effort by IFAC and Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada), who recruited PwC Canada to conduct the underlying research.
