“The fight to mitigate climate change is a long-term transition project which requires a dedicated infrastructure for green financial instruments. As a green exchange we promote best market practices and provide transparency, accountability and comparability of green bonds. We were there for the 1st green bond, we were there for the 100th, we will be there for the thousandth. Congratulations to the EIB for leading the way!” added Robert Scharfe, CEO of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.
Continuous supply of green bond benchmark issuance, efforts to continually strengthen investor engagement through harmonized reporting, disclosure and impact assessment, and a broadening range of issuers were identified as clear evidence that green bonds are both established as a mature dedicated investment instrument and key to future increase of private sector climate finance.
