Shanghai Green Bond Index Series

SSE green bond index series launched

The new index series tracks the performance of Chinese Renminbi-denominated green bonds used to finance environmentally-friendly projects.

The index series is composed of two indices that reflect the value of green bonds issued and listed on the stock market in Shanghai. The indices aim to provide greater transparency and facilitate access to Chinese green securities for investors in Europe.

As part of a cross-border cooperation between SSE and LuxSE (the exchanges signed a Memorandum of Understanding back in 2006, now they are signing an Index Agreement), the indices will be displayed on both exchanges’ websites synchronously. The new index family was jointly developed by the Shanghai Stock Exchange and China Securities Index Co and consists of two indices.

Composition of the SSE Index Series

The SSE Green Bond Index Series contains the following two indices:  

International investors get easier access to Chinese green bonds

"SSE Green Corporate Bond Index and SSE Green Bond Index launched by SSE and China Securities Index Company Limited will bring the information of mainland China's green bond market to international market, which could be treated as a good start for SSE and Luxembourg Stock Exchange to gradually realize information connection and business cooperation."

Mr Zhang Dongke

Vice Chairman of Shanghai Stock Exchange
