Do financiamento sustentável
: doing well by doing good

  • Manuel António Zambelli Daniel de Almeida Toledo (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The financial community has increasingly recognized the importance of the
Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) movement. However, it is no longer sufficient for companies to focus exclusively on the pursuit of profit; they must also pursue sustainability goals. This shift in paradigm has led to the emergence of new financial initiatives and products within the sustainable finance scope, such as green bonds, social bonds, sustainability-linked bonds, green loans, sustainability linked-loans and social loans. This thesis provides a systematic analysis of financing modalities, their structural aspects, and contractual disruptions, as instruments to achieve a low-carbon economy.
Despite some progress in this area, it is still in its early stages of development.
Therefore, regulatory and legislative breakthroughs are required more than ever if significant progress is to be made in the transition to a more sustainable future.
