Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) themed investing has moved from the fringe to the core of public finance. ESG-labeled municipal bonds have grown more than 750% over the last decade and are expected to total $500 billion outstanding by the end of the decade. This growth offers tremendous challenges, and opportunities, for the municipal finance industry.
