Green bonds are bonds issued to raise capital for sustainability projects that yield ecological or social benefits. We at the Vienna Stock Exchange support sustainability and transparency on capital markets and offer Austrian and international issuers a platform for green bonds.
Sustainable investments with green bonds –
Added value for investors and issuers
- Transparent: regular information on the use of the issuance proceeds by the issuers
- External audit or certification: by independent institutions such as the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) or rfu, which prepare sustainability research (so-called Second Party Opinions) for green and social bonds under consideration of international standards.
- Sustainabilty: Investors have the certainty of knowing that by buying a green bond they are actually making a responsible and ecological investment, in which Environment Social Governance (ESG) criteria play a role.
