The Climate Bonds Standard and Certification Scheme is a FairTrade-like labelling scheme for bonds. Rigorous scientific criteria ensure that it is 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.




The Climate Bond Standards and Certification Scheme is coordinated through the work of dedicated working groups. It's overseen by a Climate Bond Standards Advisory Board* representing institutional investors and environmental NGOs. The Advisory Board reports to the Governors of the Climate Bonds Initiative, a registered charity in England and Wales.
