Green Bonds and Second Party Opinions

ISS ESG’s Second Party Opinions (SPOs) provide green bond issuers with a credible and independent assessment of the environmental and social quality of their bonds. Those that meet ISS ESG’s rigorous global standards give sustainability-oriented investors security that the projects they fund aren’t “greenwashed.”
