Issuer Pledge: Government Agencies and Companies
We agree that all infrastructure and capital projects will need to be climate resilient and, where relevant, support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
We welcome the role that green bonds can play in helping to achieve the financing of that infrastructure.
As a signatory to this pledge, we support the rapid growth of a green bonds market, consistent with global best practices, that can meet the financing needs we face, and will issue, whenever applicable, bonds for infrastructure as green bonds.
We pledge to support this goal by establishing a green bonds strategy that will finance infrastructure and capital projects that meet the challenges of climate change while transforming our community into a competitive, prosperous and productive economy.
