Today it is widely recognised that Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) risks present financial, operational and compliance risks to companies. That is, ESG is no longer merely a corporate social responsibility or a reputational issue. It affects businesses, and failure to manage these risks carefully may bring about real financial impacts on the company. For example, green bond is a sustainability-induced financial vehicle, which is a bond specifically earmarked to be used for climate and environmental projects. This implies the sustainability trend is really evolving.
