More than $100 Billion in green bonds

Green bonds allow local firms, governments and global organizations to offer ethical opportunities for progressive investors to earn competitive returns, while providing funding for clean energy projects. Estimates from White & Case, an American legal firm, combined with data from Moody’s, indicates that total investment in green bonds went from $800 million in 2007 to $50 billion in 2016.
