Green Bonds: Capitalism is Going Green #infographic

Over the last 12 months, buying US company debt for environmental reasons has not been a good tactic. However, as the market is swelling, so-called green bonds are being prepared for better results as investors pour cash into assets that could help the world to save.

"Capitalism and responsible investment are not mutually exclusive," said in a telephone interview given on January 24, Stephen Liberatore, head of Nuveen 's responsible fixed-income strategy team. "And when they're done together properly they work really well."

The Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Green Bond Index — which tracks green corporate bonds — gained around 13 per cent in the 12 months to January 24. This is less than the broad investment-grade corporate debt benchmark, which returned around 16 per cent, according to the Bloomberg Barclays index data.
