GlobalCapital Sustainable and Responsible Capital Markets Awards 2017: the Winners

Hong Kong green lake and blue sea from PA 230x150

France, Tennet, NWB and Berlin Hyp are among the green and social bond issuers acclaimed in GlobalCapital's Sustainable and Responsible Capital Markets Awards 2017, which were announced on Tuesday in Amsterdam.

The Awards are the leading ones for the growing global markets for green and social bonds. They are based on a poll of market participants, which GlobalCapital conducted in July. 

Hence, they reflect the opinion of the market on what were the most innovative deals, the most creative players, and the most diligent servants of the market in the year to July 2017. They include Awards for the best deals, issuers, investment banks, investors, law firm and second opinion provider, as well as two general Awards for the most influential champion of the market and the most valuable innovation. For the first time this year, we added an award for green loans.

The Awards were given at a ceremony at the close of GlobalCapital's Sustainable and Responsible Capital Markets Forum, organised jointly with Euromoney Conferences, which is now in its fifth year.

The full results of the Awards are below.
