Environmental Finance Handbook 2009/10
Euromoney Trading Ltd, September 2009
The past year has seen extreme turbulence in the financial markets, with companies struggling to stay afloat and redirect investment towards areas that will continue to grow despite the crisis. Environmental finance is one of the industries that has maintained development despite the unsettled markets and promises to go from strength to strength as the world readies itself to pledge further commitment to tackle environmental issues in a number of ways, including via investment in environmentally progressive projects. This exciting arena offers unlimited potential for investors and businesses alike, as both aim to profit from advances made in the cleantech and carbon markets environment.
The second edition of The Environmental Finance Handbook tackles the key developments and opportunities arising in the environmental finance arena, keeping you up-to-date with the latest news. Industry leaders come together in this unique Handbook to discuss and debate the way forward, not just for the financial industry, but for the world as a whole. This year's Handbook includes a dedicated section on microfinance, an increasingly recognised tool for poverty alleviation in developing and emerging economies.
Environmental issues affect every one of us and it is now impossible to avoid getting involved in the developments that are at the forefront of the future of finance. With exclusive editorial contributions from the International Emissions Trading Association, World Bank, International Finance Corporation, Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi, Yes Bank and many more, this exciting publication is an essential tool to the environmental finance arena.
The capital markets will need to play an important role in mobilising private funding for climate change mitigation and adaptation projects. However, to raise the funds required to make an impact in the fight against climate change, investment products must be designed to appeal to investors with a substantial asset base. Pension funds and sovereign wealth funds have large allocations to fixed income. Green bonds are an example of an innovative fixed income investment product that appeals to investors for this asset class and can pave the way for the next phase of products to mobilise significant capital to finance the greatest challenge faced by our generation.
