In anticipation of a vaccine-led, fiscal spending supported economic recovery, equity markets have risen strongly from the lows last year.
Green bonds' proceeds are directed exclusively to financing projects that have a positive environmental impact. However there is still no one widely accepted definition of what constitutes green.
