Green Bonds Are Increasingly Expanding France’s Public Sector Investor Base

Following Ile-de-France’s landmark €7 billion sovereign green issuance earlier this year, S&P Global Ratings’ latest report considers the prospects of France’s booming green bond market – and its global influence.

Key takeaways: 
As early adopters of green bonds, French public-sector borrowers account for almost one-in-10 green dollars raised on the global bond markets;
These public sector entities have also benefitted significantly from green loans as it is estimated that half of the €39 billion European Investment Bank (EIB) funding they receive is indirectly green*;
Investor appetite and banks’ underwriting activity increasingly supports green issuances, as demand for eco-friendly projects grow.
