Sustainability-Linked Bonds: Linking Business Strategy with Sustainability

Sustainability-linked bonds are a new type of debt instrument in the ESG investing scene.

The proceeds deriving from sustainability-linked bonds are not restricted to specific projects and may be used for general corporate purposes.

The Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX), the world’s leading platform for sustainable finance instruments, recently recognized sustainability-linked bonds.
