Sustainable finance options
Green, social, sustainability loans and bonds
Use of proceeds instruments include green, social and sustainability loans and bonds – essentially any debt instrument where proceeds are used to finance or refinance assets or projects that meet certain green or social criteria. There are certain steps that need to be undertaken for an issuer to be able to claim the “green” or “social” label for their bond or loan.
We partner with our institutional customers to lead the transaction through each of these steps, to ensure a successful transaction which aligns with global market principles and investor expectations.
