On October 26, 2017 ESI Africa reported that the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) launched the Green Bond Segment. It quoted Donna Nemer, Director of Capital Markets at the JSE, as follows:
“Issuing a green bond can help companies to strengthen their credentials as sustainable and responsible organisations. At the same time green bonds allow investors to mitigate the effects of climate risk as a part of their investment portfolio, while these bonds also satisfy environment, social and governance (ESG) requirements and green investment mandates.”
