About Green Bond Principles
The Green Bond Principles (GBP) serves as an institution for cooperation between issuing enterprises, intermediaries and investors. The objective is to stimulate transparency and disclosure of information, as well as improving integrity for these markets. The GBP provide guidelines to issuers on the most important aspects of issuing not just green but also social and sustainable bonds. They support investors by improving the availability of data needed to evaluate the impact of their bond investments. They also help intermediaries in structuring these bonds. Due in part to the GBP, the issuance of green, social and sustainable bonds has been growing fast, achieving peak fund raising levels of 475 billion USD in 2019.
