Now in their second year, these are the leading Awards for the fast-growing global green bond and social bond markets. The Awards are respected, partly because they are based entirely on a poll of market participants, which means that they truly reflect market opinion. 

The Awards commend the issuers, investors, investment banks and other market participants that have most impressed market participants, and contributed most to expanding, strengthening and developing sustainable and responsible capital markets. A new category this year commends the best green loan. 

Published here are the Nominations - the Winners will be announced at the close of GlobalCapital's Sustainable and Responsible Capital Markets Forum on Tuesday September 5.

This event, organised jointly with Euromoney Conferences, is now in its fifth year and attracts many leading green and social bond issuers, ESG investors and other green finance experts. The conference is free to attend for issuers, investors and some other categories of market participant, so register here and come on down to Amsterdam next week.
