Green IFSC: Securitisation of carbon offsets and creation of a new crossover credit, February 2011


Ireland is an established centre of expertise in inter-related financial and industrial sectors active in the green energy and related areas including project finance, wind farm development, turbine manufacture, equipment leasing, insurance and securitisation. The magnitude of the capital investment required to support the realisation of the global low carbon economy will require the development of innovative financing products and techniques.
