(2019) This report is the first to outline how blockchain technology could be deployed in an end-to-end digital green bond. It examines how blockchain technology has been used in bonds (up to Q3, 2019) demonstrating efficiency and cost savings opportunities applicable to all bonds. Furthermore it addresses the opportunities especially relevant to Green Bonds, in establishing credibility for Use of Proceeds and Proof of Impact, and innovation potential for new markets, by applying blockchain and adjacent technologies already in use elsewhere, to Green Bonds. A collaboration between the HSBC Centre of Sustainable Finance and GDFA, the report provides key recommendations.
