ADB Green Bonds
The Green Bond program enables ADB to support its developing member countries seeking to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to the consequences of climate change, whilst delivering environmentally sustainable growth to help reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of their people.
The Green Bond portfolio specifically targets projects that promote the transition to low carbon and climate resilient growth as set out in the ADB Green Bond Framework.
How can companies and investors benefit?
Projects eligible for ADB Green Bond financing should be in the following areas:
- Clean energy
- Sustainable transport and urban development
- Green land use and forest management
- Building climate resilience
- Strengthening climate change adaption and mitigation policies, governance, and institutions.
Eligible projects are identified by using the joint multilateral development bank approach for tracking and reporting climate change mitigation and adaptation finance.
Projects that deliver environmentally sustainable growth may also be eligible for Green Bond financing.
