Sustainable Financial Instruments

The following report was prepared and published by our sister platform SPEEDA—March 2024.

Overview

SFIs Enhance Sustainable Finance by Emphasising ESG Considerations

Sustainable financial instruments (SFIs), are investment and funding instruments that integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations into their design and decision-making processes. Their primary objective is to generate not only financial returns but also positive sustainability outcomes. Moreover, these instruments allow issuers to raise capital to support their overall sustainability strategy.
SFIs are mainly of two types: debt instruments and equity instruments. Sustainable debt financial instruments (SDFIs) focus on sustainable debt financing, such as green bonds, social bonds, blue bonds, and green securitisation. Sustainable equity financial instruments, such as green equity and ESG equity index funds, are geared towards sustainable equity funding. This trend report focuses on SDFIs, particularly on investments in the environmental sector.
