RESEARCH

We emphasize and encourage links between academic researchers and practitioners at financial institutions to bring theoretical techniques to bear on realworld issues.

Climate Risk and Sustainable Finance

Green Bonds, Climate Change, and the Just Transition to a Low Carbon Economy

This research will examine whether green bonds could help in financing the transition to a low‐carbon economy. Specifically, it will examine the “economic geography” of green bonds (i.e. where green bonds’ proceeds are invested), what kind of environmental projects they finance, and whether/how green bonds allow for a “just transition” to a low carbon economy.
