Title
Beyond bluewashing: a critical examination of labeling blue bonds
Author
Abstract
The sustainable debt market is currently grappling with the contentious issue of labeling in debt-for-marine conservation swaps led by The Nature Conservancy (TNC), sparking concerns over blue bonds and the potential for blue-washing. This article delves into the interplay between labeling and credibility, exploring the hidden decision-making complexities behind legal safeguards and surface labels. While the prevailing emphasis lies in establishing "good enough fictional expectations" for investment portfolios through labeling and liability mechanisms, this brief comment discusses how such a focus might be undermining climate justice.
