GlobalCapital announced the winners in a ceremony at the end of the Sustainable & Responsible Capital Markets Forum, held in Amsterdam on September 6.

The Awards were the result of an extensive market poll, conducted in July. Issuers, investors, investment banks and other market participants voted in the poll, choosing the best Green and SRI Bond deals, market participants and innovations in the year July 2015 to July 2016.

These Awards therefore represent the most comprehensive survey so far of market opinion on what are the most impressive actions and actors in this important market.

GlobalCapital would like to thank all who shared their expertise by voting in the poll, and congratulates all the winners and nominees.
