This is the first of our two-part 2023 ESG Outlook Series, in which we explore what this year has in store for green deals.
In this episode, we explore the outlook for sustainable M&A with Jeff McDermott, Global Co-Head of Investment Banking at Nomura. We hone in on the sectors to watch including carbon capture technologies and sustainable food, while considering whether the coming 12 months may be a tipping point for moving away from a fossil fuel economy.
We also discuss the outlook for ESG bond deals with Jarek Olszowka, Nomura’s Head of Sustainable Finance. We examine how the green bond market will continue to flourish and whether social bonds may see increased inflows amid the prospect of a global recession and a cost-of-living crisis. We also touch on the trend towards biodiversity and Japan’s booming market for transition bonds.
