The market for green securities has experienced rapid growth in recent years as climate change becomes a top global priority. To help facilitate the development of this market, in 2016 we launched the Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX), a dedicated platform for green securities. LGX aims to bring green issuers and environmentally-conscious investors together under one roof. To find out if your green securities qualify for entry to LGX, visit our dedicated LGX section.
Green bonds are debt instruments that have been issued to fund projects that have a positive environmental or climate benefit. Proceeds from these bonds are typically earmarked for green projects and are backed by the issuer’s entire balance sheet.
