Description

The popularity of sustainable investments, as for example is measured with ESG-Factors, has increased massively over the last decade. However, to measure the true impact of sustainable investments (through "green bonds" in my research) an adequate and consistent framework as well as an analysis of this specific type of investments if currently lacking. The focus of my research will be centered around the topic of "green bonds". By qualitatively defining the preferred framework for the certification of green bonds, discussing current standards as well as providing an in-depth analysis of them. Furthermore, the valuation of green bonds and the differences with their brown/conventional counterparts, as well as the properties of green bonds will be assessed.
