ESG Risk & Investment Asia: The Rise of Sustainability Linked Bonds

Hosted by Regulation Asia & ESG Investor on 5 October 2022 online

With the introduction of Sustainability Linked Bonds (SLB) as an alternative to green bonds, there has been an increase in SLB-related debt from corporates who aren’t using their loans to fund sustainability-related projects.

Considering ICMA’s guidelines on SLBs, are they helping to improve stability, or should there be more formal regulations enforced for the use of SLBs?

This panel explored the strengths and potential limitations of SLB and ESG debt and measuring the performance of sustainability-linked projects to ensure companies are not engaging in greenwashing.
