The Greenium – the yield that investors concede to companies issuing a green bond compared to the performance they would have required from these same companies for a conventional bond with the same maturity - was long perceived as volatile, hovering in one direction or another according to the seasonality. But it finally became a key issue in 2020.

In this new study, we shall examine factors that may act as new catalysts for the Greenium in 2022.


  • The dispersion of Greenium by sector is due to the number of green bonds and issuers
  • In 2022, we expect a major comeback for green senior preferred banking debt and covered bonds issued by banks
  • The big unknown in the Greenium “equation” remains the growth of Sustainability-Linked bonds, which flooded the primary market last year
