Fair trade bonds for the green investor

Environmentally conscious investors after green portfolios will soon be able to buy bonds with a 'climate' certification in the same way consumers can buy Fairtrade coffee. And it's little surprise to see insurers as major backers of the plan.

Investors will soon be able to buy corporate bonds with a 'climate' certification, much as consumers with strong social and environmental convictions now buy coffee and chocolate products with labels such as Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance.

Carrying such a certification will enable institutional investors and pension funds, which have been looking to make their portfolios green, to quickly identify environment-friendly bonds without having to do the due diligence themselves.
