Nordic Investment Bank this week issued a new 20 year (yes, long dated are selling) SEK 500 million "Environmental Bond", linked to their environmental lending portfolio. It was sold mainly to Scandinavian investors. Lead Managers were SEB (go Christopher Flensborg!) and BoAML. Interest rate 2.75%.

According to Pensions & Investment magazine: "Money managers, institutional investors and others are combining efforts to drive the nascent green bonds market forward, and the fruits of their labor are becoming apparent."
It's an all-cast story, with quotes from CalSTRS, SSgA, UKSIF, SEB, IIGCC, AP3, Nikko, Calvert (if you know all the acronyms you qualify as a green bond groupie). The story also mentions the Climate Bonds Standards.
