New green bond offering from Euronext

The Euronext exchange has announced the creation of a new green bonds offering across its six regulated markets.

The initiative was launched at the Climate Finance Week in Dublin and is designed to promote sustainable investing in Europe by offering issuers the opportunity to list bonds to finance their environmental and sustainability projects. The offering goes live today with more than 50 participating issuers and marks the first product launch of Euronext’s new three-year strategic plan, ‘Let’s Grow Together 2022’.

In order to be eligible for inclusion, Green Bonds must be listed on a Euronext market, be aligned with recognizable industry standards such as ICMA Green Bond Principles or the Climate Bond Initiative Taxonomy, and be accompanied by an appropriate external review performed by an independent third party.
