Climate Bonds Initiative

The Climate Bonds Initiative works to mobilise the $100 trillion green bond market to invest in projects and assets necessary for a rapid transition to a low-carbon and climate resilient economy. The strategy is to develop a large and liquid Green and Climate Bonds Market that will help drive down the cost of capital for climate projects in developed and emerging markets; to grow aggregation mechanisms for fragmented sectors; and to support governments seeking to tap debt capital markets. Climate Bonds Initiative is an investor-focused not-for-profit. Our work therefore is an open source public good.
