Quick description

Environmental Finance, acquired by Field Gibson Media in 2012, is an online news service with a quarterly print edition. It was first established in 1999 to report on environmental markets, investments and risk. It provides timely and incisive news and analysis on a broad range of environmental issues (climate change, renewable energy finance, emissions markets, weather risk management, policy and legislation, environmental insurance and sustainable investments). Field Gibson Media launched two databases – Insurance Risk Data and Environmental Finance Data, which have led to some great research reports being published.

Environmental Finance Data  is a research tool covering all sustainable bonds issued since 2007, with 95%+ market coverage. Originally covering green bonds, the database has evolved with the market and now tracks social, sustainability, transition, and sustainability-linked bonds. Environmental Finance Data is a live database, reacting to changes and evolution of the sustainable bond market by regularly adding new datapoints and functionality. The database is updated daily with new transactions, resources and information and is reconciled on a quarterly basis to ensure maximum accuracy. Access is via a subscription to the platform or through a data feed directly into your organization using an API.
