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.



Public Consultation

All of the Climate Bonds sector specific elgibility criteria are subject to a period of public consultation before they can be put to use certifying bonds. During public consultation we welcome comments on the drafts so that we can produce a standard that the market accepts.
