IMPACT REPORTING | TECHNOLOGY | SUSTAINABILITY

THE CHALLENGE

Investors around the world are getting increasingly serious about the need to confront the financial risks posed by climate change and other threats. The Green Bond market provides investors with the best of both worlds – profit and positive environment and social impacts.

The downside is in rampant fraud and other financial crimes in an emerging market expected to reach one trillion ($US) by 2021.

When it comes to reporting on investment performance, investors are in the dark; only 60% report on both use of proceeds and impacts. The Climate Bonds Initiative recently found that few do more than report annually, and most lack sufficient detail to allow for market comparison. With only 15% reporting on social bonds in accordance with the IFI Harmonized Framework, as the leading industry standard, trust is hard to establish.

Spending the better part of my life in poverty has taught a great deal about priorities. The sum total of my education, training and experience has led me to understand the importance of wealth and the need to be accountable for its impact.

My career as a trailblazer has taken me across and through many roads less travelled. As a leader in private sector large scale investment and green bond facilitation, the better part of my life has been on critically analyzing and making decisions that have significant impacts. Common to these experiences are people who seek to make a positive difference in the world - the challenge is in discerning if that is for selfish or selfless reasons.
