Swedish ESG Bonds Prove Resilient as Broader Sales Fall Sharply

Swedish kronor bonds tied to environmental, social and governance goals are helping keep the country’s waning issuance market afloat this year.

ESG’s share of new bond supply in Sweden doubled to 36% as volumes fell less than the broader market, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. While sales of green and sustainability-linked kronor notes through July dropped by roughly a quarter, to $6.1 billion, bond issuance overall fell by two-thirds.
