The sustainable finance markets have expanded rapidly in the past 10 years, from a fringe “movement” to sizeable markets providing significant financing and investing opportunities. We provide a definition and overview of the sustainable finance markets, and seek to understand the process by which traditional financial products and instruments can be financially engineered to become sustainable finance products, through two main avenues: the use of proceeds, and performance-based pricing. We provide some recent examples of innovative structures and conclude by showing that the sustainable finance market will continue to develop once solid foundations have been set.
