ABOUT THE REPORT
Brazilian companies have already issued BRL 15.6 billion in green bonds in the national and international markets (Sep/2018). Issuance is concentrated in a few sectors, such as wind energy and pulp and paper. In order to foster the Brazilian Green Bonds market, especially issuances with greater additionality to climate change mitigation plans, SITAWI, supported by ICS (Instituto Clima e Sociedade), published “THE COOLEST BONDS: eligible assets and projects for issuing Brazilian green bonds aligned to the Paris Climate Agreement”.
This publication mapped 104 assets and projects that could use green bonds’ proceeds in 9 key sectors of the Brazilian economy: Agriculture and Livestock, Biofuels, Power, Forestry, Real Estate, Industrial, Sanitation and Waste, Transport and Finance.
