This references an article written by Nick Cottam, originally published on Environment Analyst.

E Co’s expert and Principal consultant, Seth Landau was recently interviewed as a part of the article ‘Green bonds fuel green recovery’ to discuss the state of the green bond market:
“Both the needs and opportunities for climate finance are huge. It’s important to ensure that investments go towards positive solutions and this is still being somewhat sorted out. It’s a great sign that cities on the one hand and investors on the other are reviewing their projects and portfolios with sustainability in mind.”
