The FTSE Green Impact Bond Index Series provides a comprehensive measure of the global green bond market across various asset classes and credit sectors.
The series measures the performance of both investment-grade and high-yield multi-currency green debt issued by government, government-sponsored, supranational, collateralised and corporations. FTSE Russell considers 'impact bonds' to include green, social and sustainability 'use of proceeds' bonds and 'sustainability linked bonds'.
A bond is labelled as a green bond if its proceeds are specifically earmarked for projects that have environmental and/or climate benefit and has been labelled as “green” by the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) and aligned with International Capital Markets Association’s (ICMA) Green Bond Principles (GBP).
Clear disclosure of "Use of proceeds" and "Ongoing Reporting" are critical to avoid greenwashing. To be eligible for inclusion, a green bond must be labelled as "green" by the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) and is aligned with International Capital Markets Association's (ICMA) Green Bond Principles (GBP).
The series comprises:
FTSE Global Green Impact Bond Index (Global Green Impact)
FTSE World Broad Investment-Grade Green Impact Bond Index (WorldBIG Green Impact)
FTSE Euro Broad Investment-Grade Green Impact Bond Index (EuroBIG Green Impact)
FTSE US Broad Investment-Grade Green Impact Bond Index (USBIG Green Impact)
The Green Impact Bond Index Series covers a broad array of asset classes and will have sub-indices available in any combination of currency, maturity and rating.
