Green, Social, and Sustainable Bonds

WSGB holds three categories of bonds, all verified by the Climate Bond Institute annually for proper management and use of proceeds; you can read more about their certification process here.

Green bonds are issued by companies and governments to directly fund projects related to climate change, climate adaptation, and carbon reduction. Green bonds held by WSGB fund solar panels, building energy efficiency, and green transit projects.

Social bonds are issued to fund projects advancing social causes; WSGB helps advance projects related to pandemic response, affordable housing, and food security. Sustainable bonds are similar, but fund projects which combine the goals of green and social bonds.
