Certification Sector Briefings

Sector Criteria Briefings - Spotlight on Brazil


Status: The Sector Briefings aim to address one of the challenges mapped by the Climate Bonds Initiative in Brazil: the need for more significant guidance and technical assistance for issuers to come to the market with credible deals. The Climate Bonds Agriculture and Transport Criteria Briefings are already available, and the following soon are Livestock, Forestry, Bioenergy, and Solar Energy.


The Sector Briefings guide how to issue green bonds for six relevant sectors: Agriculture, Transport, Livestock, Forestry, Bioenergy, and Solar Energy.

To support the understanding of those Briefings, a series of videocasts was recorded in Sao Paulo with key-guest speakers from the relevant sectors to share their case studies and what they learned with the Certification process. While a substantial part of market education revolves around the land use criteria and requirements, Climate Bonds identified the need for improving the understanding of Brazilian issuers on the Climate Bonds Standards and Certification Scheme, particularly the applicability of sector criteria in the local market.
