Indian labelled debt markets in 2021: What’s behind the Quantum Jump?
In Calendar year 2021, the labelled ESG Bond markets have shown a sharp increase in activity, and from what market participants state, there is plenty of action to come.  As per banking sources, this year’s ESG labelled  issuance is expected to cross USD 10 Billion, being 40% of the total expected offshore issuance of USD 25 Billion.

The growth has not only been in terms of Green Bonds, but associated instruments like sustainability linked bonds (including a global first from a steel company). The year also saw the first AT 1 Bond with a sustainability label from Axis Bank.  While renewable energy is a clear leader in terms of use of proceeds, there are issuance from a municipality, an agrochemicals major and also a cement manufacturer. There has been interest shown from es from real estate and grids as well. Domestic issuances have been given a fillip by the issuance of Vector Green Energy and others are possibly in the pipeline.
What are the next steps on the way? Where is this headed by the end of FY 2021?
