Standard

The Climate Bonds Standard and Certification Scheme is a labelling scheme for bonds and loans. Rigorous scientific criteria ensure that bonds and loans with Certification, are consistent with the 2 degrees Celsius warming limit in the Paris Agreement. The Scheme is used globally by bond issuers, governments, investors and the financial markets to prioritise investments which genuinely contribute to addressing climate change.

 

Industry Working Group

The Climate Bonds Industry Working Groups provide sector specific experience and input to ensure that criteria are practical and conducive to rapid diffusion of the product. The group is made up of representation from each sector and will include individual companies as well as industry associations in order to receive input from as broad a perspective as possible.  The group is consulted on the structure and content of the Standard and they also comment on proposed certification and verification processes for compliance with the Standard.
