With both growing demand and awareness, the value of ESG (environmental, social and governance) bonds issued in Asia, largely denominated in US dollar (USD), is expected to hit another new record of around US$90 billion-US$100 billion ($122 billion-$136 billion) in 2022, following a record poised to be made by the end of this year.

“ESG bond supply has grown tremendously over the past year, both globally and in Asia, as the ESG agenda becomes the number one focus among investors and issuers,” notes JPMorgan in its ESG Financing Outlook 2022, released on Oct 27.

Total assets under management (AUM) of ESG-dedicated funds in Asia ex-Japan reached US$35.3 billion by the end of the third quarter. This marks growth of some 95% y-o-y.
