Gilbert + Tobin has developed a comprehensive and forward-looking overview of “green finance” products and mechanisms available for use in developing renewable energy, climate resilience and other environmental projects, with a strategic focus on Australia.

Our team explains the rapid increase in opportunities for investment in green projects, presenting a suite of new instruments including green bonds and other structured products, blended finance models, and some innovative fintech solutions.

We also examine these developments through the lens of environmental, social & governance risk, given increased awareness of the commercial materiality of these factors.

This overview presents our “state of the green finance market” view, with a particular focus on the leading role of China, and implications for the Australian market.
