This is Climate Bonds’ first study of post-issuance disclosure practices of green bonds in China, produced in partnership with SynTao Green Finance. Available in both English and Chinese, it builds on the series of global studies on this topic that Climate Bonds has conducted over the last few years.
This is the 3rd iteration of our Post-Issuance Reporting in the Green Bond Market Series.
Post-issuance reporting on the use of proceeds (UoP) is a core component of the Green Bond Principles (GBP), the Green Loan Principles (GLP) and the Climate Bonds Standard (CBS). Issuers that are effectively reporting on the environmental impacts of funded projects ensure the transparency and accountability underpins the credibility of the green bonds and loans.

Post-issuance reporting on the use of proceeds (UoP) is a core component of the Green Bond Principles (GBP) and the Green Loan Principles (GLP). It is also recommended that issuers report on the environmental impacts of funded projects. Post-issuance disclosure provides transparency, ensures accountability and underpins the credibility of green bonds and loans. As the market grows, so does interest in UoP and impact reporting to inform investor analysis and decision-making processes.
This is Climate Bonds Initiative’s first study on post-issuance reporting of green bonds. The aim is to follow up on post-issuance reporting by green bond issuers to see how thoroughly they are reporting on green bond allocation and projects.
