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.

 

Transmission & Distribution

Climate Bonds has begun development of criteria for the transmission and distribution of electricity (i.e. Grids).

Technical and industry experts have been identified and brought together in the form of a Technical Working Group (TWG) and Industry Working Group (IWG), in order to develop these criteria. They will provide requirements for grid investments which principally ensure two things: a) that they are contributing to climate change mitigation through emissions reductions; and b) that they are adapted and resilient to climate change.
