Green Bonds, the French expertise

 

With 11 billion dollars in issuance (source: Climate Bonds Initiative), France was once again the largest global issuer of Green Bonds in 2015.  

The funds raised are used exclusively to finance "green" projects such as renewable energies, sustainable land use and non-polluting transport. In May 2015, based on work carried out with multiple market participants (companies issuing Green Bonds, investors, rating agencies, etc.), Paris EUROPLACE published a brochure on "Engagement and Expertise of Paris Marketplace Participants in Green Bonds".
