JOOL Markets becomes a Climate Bonds Partner

Collaboration to mobilise Nordic corporates for green finance


OSLO/LONDON, 06/09/2018: Market leader in the Nordic corporate bond SEK30-200 million segment, JOOL Markets (JOOL), just joined the Climate Bonds Partner Programme. JOOL is the first boutique investment bank focussing on small and mid-sized enterprises (SME) from the Nordics to become a Partner. JOOL is also the 6th CBI Partner from the region.

With offices in Bergen, Gothenburg, Helsinki, Oslo, and Stockholm, JOOL is deeply rooted in the Nordic region and capital markets. JOOL has structured over 100 debt financings and numerous bond listings with a diverse set of SMEs.

Climate Bonds has been working on developing green bonds markets across the Nordics for many years, and together, the two organisations will work to develop more market breadth and depth.


Tom Olander, Chairman of JOOL Markets:

“We have been monitoring Climate Bonds Initiative’s engagement in our region for a few years now. They have proven to be a great catalyst for market growth. With Nordic issuance now well established, we believe it is time to take this to the next level. We’re looking forward to joining forces with Climate Bonds and their Partners Network.”


Manuel Adamini, Head of Investor Engagement, Climate Bonds Initiative:

“Sweden has been a pioneer in Europe for many years now. It has been a source of innovation for green debt, and the green ambition of issuers has been prominent. With deals now also coming out of Finland, we are confident that the entire Nordic region is getting ready to push climate finance one step further.

Climate Bonds has long believed that SMEs have enormous green debt issuance potential in many countries. Our partnership with JOOL provides the opportunity to tap into this unique market, expanding and diversifying corporate issuance and demonstrating the Nordic’s green finance leadership in Europe.”
