The objectives are to:

  1. Increase the supply of green debt products by lowering transaction cost and delivering efficiencies for issuers.
  2. Support growth of a wider range of green asset classes that, for example, actors not eligible to the bond market can tap into.
  3. Support new entrants in Emerging Markets to demonstrate credibility and build up a green track record to attract investments at scale.
  4. Offer efficient and transparent reporting to demonstrate positive impact and support informed choices about future investments.
