Green and sustainable debt capital markets

Credit Suisse has a considerable pedigree in the green bond market, underwriting the first-ever green bond issuance in 2008 from development funding institutions.

Credit Suisse has long been a supporter of the Green Bond Principles and we are actively seeking to help mobilize more capital toward a “low carbon” economy. In this respect, Credit Suisse and the Climate Bond Initiative (CBI) joined forces in September 2020 and published “Financing Credible Transitions,” which presents a framework for defining ambitious and credible transition pathways for companies to collectively reduce global emissions in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement. Its aim is to support rapid growth of a transition bond market as part of a larger and liquid climate-related market, and to deliver confidence for investors, clarity for bankers and credibility for issuers.
