Criteria in development - not available for certification

THE GOAL

To catalyse increased investment, by both private and public bodies, in material marine based climate mitigation, adaptation and resilience interventions. 

HOW?

By developing eligibility criteria for marine-related investments under the Climate Bonds Standard.

This definitional work will be informed by a Technical Working Group (TWG) made up of technical and industry experts. It will recognise the diversity of countries, issuers and verifiers as well as the potential for secondary use of the Climate Bonds Standards by other entities such as Green Climate Fund, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs and impact investors.

2. Email certification@climatebonds.net for more information

The TWG will meet monthly to discuss and advise on the development of the sector criteria, before proposing a final standard.

Once completed and released, the marine sector criteria will allow certification of marine-related investments under the Climate Bonds Standard.

Each sector-specific eligibility criteria are developed along a set process. This ensures we create robust sceince-backed criteria that are useable in the market:
 
 
 

 

Eligibility criteria are currently available for Solar, Wind, Geothermal, Low Carbon Buildings, Water and Low Carbon Transport.

Soon to be available are criteria for Bioenergy and Land Use. Work is ongoing on Hydropower, Waste Management and, of course, Marine.
