Speaking to the pair about the recent Novelis green bond issue and exploring how Jersey and TISE can support the growth of the global sustainable debt capital markets, David poses a range of questions to our guests, including:
- What is a green bond? And how does it differ from a regular bond issue?
- What is the Novelis deal? And what attracts issuers like Novelis to list on TISE?
- What requirements are there for listing on the TISE Green segment?
- How does TISE help to build investor trust around Green Bonds and ensure market integrity?
- Are we seeing convergence and the emergence of a ‘global standard’ of green bond frameworks and regulation?
- What developments will we see in terms of the overlap between ESG and debt capital markets? And how can Jersey support this?
