Mexico City issues 1st muni bond from Latin America! MXN 1 bn (USD 50m), 4th from Mexico!


Mexico City Issues First LATAM Muni Green Bond: USD50M: Find out more at our Dec 13 Español and English: Green Bonds for Cities Webinars  



Mexico City (CDMX) is the first Latin American city to issue a muni bond, closing a 1 billion Mexican Pesos (USD50m) of 5 years to fund climate-resilient infrastructure and mobility projects.

Climate Bonds has been working closely with local stakeholders and green bond issuers in Mexico for over a year now, and we hear this bond is part of a larger green program planned for 2017.

The bond was over-subscribed at 2.5 times.

The use of proceeds includes potable water, waste water, energy efficiency in public lighting and subway infrastructure.

The second opinion was provided by Sustainalytics (in Spanish).

This is the 4th green bond from Mexico, the 3rd issuance in 2016 alone and 2nd in local currency. 

Our December Market Blog, due out next week, will carry more details and analysis.
