In early November, Euronext announced the creation of a new EURONEXT GREEN Bonds offering across its six market locations (Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, Oslo and Paris). The Euronext Group initiative went live with over 60 participating issuers consenting to inclusion of their securities on EURONEXT GREEN Bonds.
EURONEXT GREEN Bonds is the first initiative of the Exchange’s new three-year strategic plan ‘Let’s Grow Together 2022’. It is designed to encourage and promote more sustainable investment in Europe by offering issuers a range of opportunities to list bonds to finance their environmental and sustainability projects.
EURONEXT GREEN Bonds is a community of green bond issuers where eligible green bonds listed on all Euronext locations are consolidated into one highly visible platform. This allows issuers to showcase their ESG credentials and provides investors with a transparent discovery process to access sustainable investments.
In order to benefit from the green bonds offering, companies should list or have their green bond listed on a Euronext market, be aligned with recognisable industry standards such as ICMA Green Bond Principles or the Climate Bond Initiative Taxonomy, and should have an appropriate external review performed either by an Approved Verifier under the Climate Bonds Standards or by an independent third party.
Euronext is home to more than 250 green bonds from over 110 issuers across the globe including sovereigns, supranational issuers, government-backed and local government entities, financial institutions, corporates and pure play issuers.
For more details, please visit the EURONEXT GREEN Bonds area of our website, which also contains the Factsheet, process document, the key support document (Green Bond Declaration Form) and of course the list of green bond issuers who have already consented to their inclusion in the EURONEXT GREEN Bonds Offering.
