About the book

Green finance has been growing increasingly mainstream since the Paris Agreement was signed in 2016 and as the finance sector aims to meet the challenges of climate change and the transition to a low-carbon world. Principles and Practice of Green Finance is a comprehensive guide to the application of common green and sustainable practices in banking, investment and insurance. Focusing on the necessity and development of the global green finance sector, it also includes clear explanations of the science underpinning climate change.

This book covers the range of green finance products and services, including green bonds and asset-backed securities, in retail, commercial and corporate banking, insurance and the fintech industry.
It explains the importance of risk, regulation, international market frameworks and standards, and the role of different financial institutions and markets. Consideration is also given to the ethical dimensions of green finance and how professionals can promote market integrity. Endorsed by the Chartered Banker Institute as the core text for their Green Finance Certificate, Principles and Practice of Green Finance is essential reading for finance professionals, students and those working in climate science.
