ADB Green Bonds Newsletter and Impact Report 2015
ADB green bonds support mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to consequences of climate change, while delivering environmentally sustainable growth to help reduce poverty and improve the quality of life.
Environmental sustainability is a prerequisite for economic growth and poverty reduction in Asia and the Pacific and ADB plays an important role in leading the region to a low-carbon and climate-resilient future through financing and introduction of innovative technologies. Green bonds have proven to be an effective tool to promote ADB’s climate change strategy. Eligible green bond projects are identified by ADB energy, climate change, and environmental specialists on a continuous basis.
This publication provides brief information on ADB's green bond commitments by country and by sector, as well as information on green bond issuance to date.
