green bonds - The New School SCEPA

Willi Semmler, a SCEPA Senior Fellow and NSSR Professor of Economics, has for many years argued that green bonds are a powerful tool for financing the transition to a low-carbon economy. That policy proposal is getting attention — New York state recently overwhelmingly approved a $4.2 ballot measure called the Clean Water, Clean Air and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act of 2022.

Research from SCEPA economists studying the economic impacts of climate change and mitigation policies show green bonds have great potential to help countries across the world increase environmental investments and reach emission targets.
