How are you getting your business geared up for forward-looking investments? Profit from our international know-how in the entire issuing process for green bonds, green Schuldscheins and ESG-linked Schuldscheins and in other sustainable capital market financing. Our highly experienced team will see you through your ESG issuings – for more sustainability at your company at the financing level as well.

Your challenge

What sustainable financial products are out there? How can sustainable financial solutions help enhance your reputation on the market? What are ESG-linked products? What should you do and not do when it comes to green bonds? What are the latest trends in sustainable instruments?

You have questions? We have yearslong expertise. And we’re here to advise and assist you with the financing of your sustainable projects. You, too, can benefit from the trend toward sustainable debt issuance. This is because the issuers who qualify their financing as a sustainable capital investment are becoming increasingly diverse – as can also be seen in the international capital markets.

Aside from green bonds and green Schuldscheins, whose proceeds are earmarked for sustainable projects, the ESG-linked products segment is also becoming increasingly popular among issuers. A growing number of institutional investors are adding sustainability to their risk-return approach to investing. In addition, social and environmental issues as well as sustainable corporate governance play a significant role in ratings.

“We work in partnership with our customers to help them put together the best sustainable finance solution for them.”
Sebastian Sbrizzai, Debt Capital Markets
