Only credible issuers enjoy greenium
"Our findings show that, first, in the absence of regulatory standards, investors seek credibility of green bonds and issuers.
In terms of bond credibility, we find that only bonds with external review trade at both a statistically and economically significant greenium.
Regarding issuers’ credibility, we define firms in the alternative energy sector as credible as well as banks that signed for the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI).

We find that only green bonds issued by credible companies trade at a statistically and economically significant greenium.
The presence of the greenium is still debated in the literature, and our findings contribute to this debate by providing additional evidence on the presence of the greenium in secondary markets, and, particularly, on the importance of credibility for green bonds."
