Climate Bonds – LGX Climate-Aligned Issuers

Accelerating climate finance

With the global threat of climate change being the biggest threat to humankind, the need to channel capital flows towards a transition to a low-carbon economy has become more important than ever. To accelerate this pressing transition and contribute to the Paris Agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, investors are increasingly taking into account the issuer’s activities, revenue streams and sustainability strategy. So marks the start of how the Climate Bonds – LGX Climate-Aligned Issuers came to be.

In February 2021, the Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX) teamed up with Climate Bonds Initiative to include a section exclusively dedicated to Climate-Aligned Issuers on the LGX platform. Due to their environmentally friendly line of business and revenue streams from climate-aligned activities, Climate-Aligned Issuers contribute directly to the global climate goals. Debt securities issued by Climate-Aligned Issuers, whether thematically labelled or not, are considered climate-aligned investment opportunities through their positive environmental impact and so offer investors an additional range and diversity in the climate-aligned investment universe.

Supporting the transition towards a low-carbon economy

Holistic approach

Given their line of business and their revenue streams from climate-aligned activities, Climate-Aligned Issuers contribute to the transition to a low-carbon world

Strict screening

Climate-Aligned Issuers are identified by Climate Bonds through an in-depth screening process and a detailed analysis of revenue streams and business activities

Diversification

Climate-Aligned Issuers offer investors an extended universe of climate-aligned investment opportunities, supplementing labelled green, social or sustainability bonds 

How Climate-Aligned Issuers are defined

Defined and monitored by Climate Bonds and displayed on the dedicated LGX section, Climate-Aligned Issuers are identified based on their sector of activity and the percentage of their revenue streams derived from climate-aligned activities. Climate-Aligned Issuers are public or private companies that have outstanding debts that are not labelled as green, social or sustainability bonds, but which finance climate-aligned activities:
    • Fully-aligned issuers: derive more than 95% of their revenues from climate-aligned activities
    • Strongly-aligned issuers: derive more than 75% of their revenues from climate-aligned activities 
Climate Bonds has identified eight climate-themes for the Climate-Aligned Issuers category: renewable energy, low-carbon transport, low-carbon buildings, water management, waste management, sustainable land use & agriculture, climate adaptation, and information and communications technology (ICT).
