LuxSE, the home of Green Bonds, lists 100th Green Bond!

With 100 green bonds listed in 20 currencies by 20 issuers, LuxSE is the leading global exchange for Green Bonds.

Unrivalled world leader in the listing of green bonds, the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) celebrated an important milestone in its commitment to green finance, with the listing of the 100th Green Bond admitted on its markets on 18 February 2016.
Following the COP21 agreement, Green Bond issuance is expected to play an increasing role in green finance and stock exchanges can play a distinctive role for scaling-up the market promoting transparency, accountability and comparability, while facilitating investor assessment and public confidence. Fostering trust and assuring market integrity will be a key success factor for the future development of the Green Bond market.

We constantly transform
our business for the long term
and see ourselves as true drivers of financial progress.
Green Bonds are a good example of this direction.

Robert Scharfe, CEO, LuxSE
As a reputable stock exchange committed to sustainability, LuxSE is actively promoting the further growth of the Green Bond market and is determined to facilitate green fund raising and to offer the highest transparency to investors.
