UK Sovereign Green Bond

Last updated: 21 July 2021

The UK is issuing its first ever Sovereign Green Bond to bolster the dynamism and competitiveness of the country's financial sector, attract the most innovative firms, and lead the global conversation on new technologies such as stablecoins and Central Bank Digital Currencies.

 

The Green Bonds will finance projects tackling climate change, finance much-needed infrastructure plan, and create green jobs across the country. The UK will be the first country in the world to make Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) aligned disclosures fully mandatory across the economy by 2025, going beyond the ‘comply or explain’ approach.
