The climate change objectives set at the Paris Climate Change Conference 2015 (COP 21) hardly seem to be achievable. Over the next few years and in the need for action, the financial sector in particular will play an significant role in the implementation of these objectives and a variety of financial solutions are being presented. Nevertheless, the debate about sustainability in capital investments has only just now gained momentum. Frankfurt-based partner Dennis Heuer and Professional Support Lawyer Annekatrin Kutzbach discuss the status of current initiatives and identify green finance as a sub-segment of sustainable finance. According to the authors, in addition to green bonds, green securitizations are also becoming increasingly popular with banks and investors. Securitizations provide innovative and flexible structures allowing green securitizations to mobilize previously untouched funds for sustainable purposes.
