Green bonds have been experiencing quite a boom lately — having seen a huge surge in 2013, they are up to almost $14 billion.

That surge appears to still be picking up momentum though, as green bonds look to set to climb to perhaps as high as $40 billion this year — as the graph below, courtesy of Bloomberg New Energy Finance, shows — up from under $14 billion in 2013.

Impressive growth.
