In Luxembourg, the European Investment Bank issued its first Sustainability Awareness Bond last week. The EUR500 million transaction represents the first EIB funding intended to directly support sustainable finance and builds on the EIB’s pioneering role unlocking investment through green bonds. With this new product, the Bank extends its established allocation and reporting practice to enhance capital market transparency and accountability in further areas of environmental and social sustainability. The new Sustainability Awareness Bonds complement Climate Awareness Bonds (CABs), the EIB’s established green bonds that support renewable energy and energy efficiency projects worldwide.
