Real Estate

Green and social bonds can be used to finance or re-finance real estate projects in different asset classes e.g. residential, office and logistics. Green bonds can help to lower the overall cost of financing for a project portfolio, and will attract a diversified investors base. In addition, using green or social bonds sends a strong signal to the market that the investment is environmentally friendly, has social benefits and is aligned with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Proceeds from green bonds can be used to fund a wide variety of projects, including energy efficiency upgrades, renewable energy projects, and water and wastewater infrastructure improvements.
