Where are the largest Green Bond issuers coming from?

We have looked in the Green Bond market issuance for the first three quarters of 2018. This post goes over the most important and most interesting dynamics of the market in 2018 so far. We also attempt a year-on-year analysis for a more thorough analysis.

Europe leads the Green bond Issuance

European issuers of Green Bonds come from 15 different countries and account for the 55% of the total issuance. SSAs dominate with USD22bn, but the FIG and the Corporate sector are trailing behind, with USD17bn and USD13bn, respectively.

Issuers at the end of Q3 2018 include 11 energy companies, 5 property developers, 22 financial institutions and 17 SSAs. Most of the issuance amount is originated in France (USD13.7bn), with smaller amounts, more than half, coming from Belgium (mainly through the Kingdom of Belgium’s Inaugural Green bond) and the Netherlands.
