More firms, especially major listed companies, are showing interest in raising funds by issuing environmental, social and governance (ESG) bonds, said Securities and Exchange Commission secretary-general Ruenvadee Suwanmongkol.

Eleven major companies have issued green bonds, social bonds and sustainability bonds in the two years up to October 21, raising Bt90 billion. The upward trend for ESG bonds is continuing, she said.

This year is also the first year that state agencies and enterprises have issued ESG bonds, she added.
