Climate Bonds Standart

The Climate Bonds Standard and Certification Scheme is a voluntary labelling scheme for investments – and now entities – that address the challenge of climate change and are consistent with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. The Scheme was launched in 2012 by the Climate Bonds Initiative, a not-for-profit organisation working to mobilise global capital for climate action.

The Standard was initially designed to support confidence in the climate change credentials of green bonds and other debt instruments and to facilitate investment decision-making.
