Join us in unveiling a new chapter in green building investment with the introduction of Climate Bonds Buildings Criteria 2.1 for Climate Bonds Certification.

Building on our 2012 foundations, this updated criteria emphasises embodied emissions and incorporates the EU Taxonomy, taking green buildings investment a step further.

Introducing an expanded set of criteria for New Buildings represents a significant step change for the current buildings criteria and will have several advantages, including:

- Enhanced Clarity: It provides increased clarity regarding the utilisation of criteria for new buildings, simplifying comprehension and adherence to these critical sustainability standards.
- Harnessing Technological Advancements: By encompassing New Buildings, these criteria leverage the latest technological capabilities available in the construction industry, thereby promoting innovation and sustainability.
- Addressing Typological Gaps: Addresses the fact that not all building typologies are currently addressed in the Climate Bonds Criteria.

We call on investors, stakeholders, and industry leaders to delve into expansive opportunities in this paramount green investment sector. With certifications now available, let's collaboratively shape a sustainable, resilient future for the buildings industry, echoing our shared dedication to an eco-friendlier world.
