Sustainable Debt Monitor: Market Turmoil Weighs on ESG Debt Markets

Amid rising global rates and market volatility, global issuance of sustainable debt fell to $285 billion in Q1 2022, nearly 20% lower than in Q1 2021.  Some $55 billion of issuance came from EMs in Q1—up from $45 billion in Q1 2021. 

ESG Flows and Markets - Q1 2022 Chartbook

We are pleased to share our new quarterly chartbook, designed to monitor sustainable flows (to ESG funds, climate finance flows, and climate finance to emerging markets), ESG market development, and the evolution of voluntary carbon markets.  We also include our regular EM ESG Scorecard—a useful indicator of progress in areas including carbon efficiency as well as broader environmental and social issues.

Sustainable Debt Monitor: Boom time!

Amid surging demand, we project global sustainable debt issuance at $1.8 trillion in 2022, soaring to $3.8 trillion in 2025. Under favorable market conditions, total issuance could reach an annual pace of over $7 trillion by 2025.

Sustainable Debt Monitor: A Record-Breaking Year

Global sustainable debt issuance is on track to surpass $1 trillion in 2021 – up 30% from 2020’s totals. However, emerging markets still represent less than 15% of the sustainable debt universe, highlighting strong growth potential; China, Chile, Turkey, and Mexico are the top issuers. The outstanding green bond market is now over $1 trillion, as the non-financial corporate issuer base broadens. Updated voluntary market principles and guidelines are supportive for market growth and harmonization. 

Sustainable Debt Monitor: Sustainable Debt Universe Tops $1.5 Trillion 

Global sustainable debt issuance surpassed $270bn during the first seven months of 2020, up 5% from 2019. The sustainable debt universe has now topped $1.5tn for the first time—80% in EUR, USD, and CNY
