What is a Green Bond?

A green bond is a type of bond that finances new or ongoing environmentally friendly projects aiming to combat climate change. These projects typically consist of projects aiming to improve the energy and sustainability of buildings and facilities, wastewater management, transportation, and other efforts to reduce negative effects on the environment. Green bonds have been sold in over 50 countries by federal and state entities, as well as public and private companies and investors. The U.S. is the leading source of green bond issuances, thanks to companies such as Fannie Mae and other government entities looking to improve overall sustainability efforts through infrastructure upgrades, transport improvements, retrofitting existing buildings to increase energy efficiency, and more.[i]
