Green bonds, sustainability-linked loans, social bonds, ESG loans, green covered bonds, green mortgages… these are just some of the new green products emerging in the market.

This pathway will outline some of the key new ESG or green financial products, outlining what they are used for, who might use them and any regulations or guidance they may have to follow.
