Natixis’ Orith Azoulay speaks to Bloomberg on sustainability-linked bond sales picking up in Europe

June 25, 2020

Speaking to Bloomberg, Orith Azoulay – Global Head of Green and Sustainable Finance at Natixis CIB – notes that the deal pipeline for sustainability-linked bonds will grow and issuance will materialise in the coming months.

The notes provide an alternative to green bonds, particularly for low-capex companies that have little use for funds that can only be spent on environmental projects. What’s more, sustainability-linked bonds may also be appealing to issues that have been put off from selling environmental debt because of potential greenwashing accusations.
