Green Bond Demand Coming from Tenants, J.P. Morgan Chase Says

Marilyn Ceci, managing director and head of green bonds at J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., participated in a video interview at Nareit’s ESG Forum 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in Bonita Springs, Florida.

Ceci described the rise in green bond issuance as a “natural evolution.” She noted that momentum and demand is coming from the tenant side, particularly in Europe.

Green bonds provide REITs, or any issuer, an opportunity to communicate their sustainability strategy and attract a wider investor pool, Ceci said.
