Climate Bonds Initiative is an international organisation working to mobilise global capital for climate action. They achieve this through the development of the Climate Bonds Standard and Certification Scheme, Policy Engagement and Market Intelligence work.
They empower our Partner organisations with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate, influence and instigate change.
The Initiative promote investment 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. They empower their Partner organisations with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate, influence, and instigate change.
Climate Bonds Initiative is an investor-focused not-for-profit. Our work therefore is an open source public good and falls into three workstreams.
Their Manifesto calls for Five steps to reach the Target of $5 Trillion per year in issuance by 2025.
