Embracing ESG – Challenges and Opportunities Chasing Net Zero
2021 has seen a sharp rise in issuance of ESG labelled bonds from India exceeding USD 6 Billion. While India’s green issuances have certainly grown, other sustainability linked and social bonds have also made their debut from industrial sectors like cement, steel and chemicals.

Alongside this spectacular growth in ESG-labelled bonds and expectations of a vibrant pipeline of offshore as well as domestic issuances, India has also seen other important milestones, such as the installation of 100 GW of renewable energy, the announcement of a national hydrogen policy, and several large corporate bodies committing to large scale investments in the green economy over a period of time. The importance of ESG debt in India’s energy transition journey is only set to grow.

Climate Bonds, FICCI and MUFG are pleased to bring you a forum that gathers representatives from India’s most influential companies to explain how they align their organisations’ environmental and social values with their issuances as well as their sustainability plans going forward.
