The Climate Bonds Standard and Certification Scheme is a labelling scheme for bonds, loans & other debt instruments. Rigorous scientific criteria ensure that it is consistent with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement to limit warming to 1.5 degrees. The Scheme is used globally by bond issuers, governments, investors and the financial markets to prioritise investments which genuinely contribute to addressing climate change.


ANZ Green Property & Renewables Bond

The ANZ Green Property & Renewables Bond is the world’s first bond certified under the new Low Carbon Buildings criteria in the Climate Bonds Standard. Some specific projects being funded by bond proceeds include Miaoli Wind Farm in Taiwan, Collgar Wind Farm in Australia and Brookfield Tower Place, a low-carbon building in Perth. 

It was verified by EY as being compliant with the Climate Bonds Standard.
