Like all GlobalCapital's Bond and Loan Awards, our Green/SRI Bond and Loan Awards are determined entirely by market opinion, through a public poll of market participants.
We believe this enables them to act as a valuable channel of communication for the market - reflecting what participants think has worked particularly well during the past year, and which innovations deserve highlighting.
We invite players active in the market to vote online at this address: https://www.surveygizmo.eu/s3/90086872/GlobalCapital-SRI-Poll-2018
The poll is open until Friday July 13, and may be completed in several stages if you wish. The rules of the poll are explained at the poll website, but are straightforward - votes must be honest; there is one vote per firm; arrangers and advisers can vote for their own deals but issuers may not; players do not vote on their own competitors, and may not vote for themselves.
We have slightly revised the Award categories this year, to reflect changes in the market, notably the rise of green loans and of social and sustainability bonds. There is a new Award for the best Environmental Impact Consultant, a service more and more issuers and investors are using; and one for the Best Designed Green/SRI Debt Framework.
GlobalCapital makes no prescriptions about what transactions, actions, institutions or people market participants vote for, except for the rule about not self-voting, and that the time span of the poll is work done between July 2017 and June 2018.
We hope you enjoy the poll and find it useful. If you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
