The Climate Bonds Initiative has developed the Climate Bonds Standard, a screening and preferencing tool which helps investors and governments assess the integrity of environmental claims for green bonds.

 “As a large pension fund, we focus on creditworthiness as well as a benchmark against which we are judged. As part of our desire to produce excess return, we are particularly interested in climate bonds as part of our broader strategy as a long-horizon investor to respond to climate change and provide a competitive return to our teacher members. We see our work with the Climate Bond Standards Board as furthering these objectives.”
