The transition to a sustainable global economy requires scaling up financing of projects that deliver positive impact for the environment and society. It is estimated, for example, that $5 trillion USD to $7 trillion USD is required every year between now and 2030 to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The bond market, through Green, Social, Sustainability Bonds and Sustainability-Linked Bonds, can play a crucial role in attracting and directing private capital to finance improved social and environmental outcomes.

The FTSE Green Impact Bond Series will be the first product suite in FTSE index family to facilitate investment into projects have a positive environmental and/or social impact.
