Sustainable Bond Market

Leading the world’s sustainable finance ecosystem

London Stock Exchange’s dedicated Sustainable Bond Market (SBM) champions innovative issuers in sustainable finance and improves access, flexibility and transparency for investors.

In 2015, we became the first exchange to set up dedicated Green Bond Segments. Now our expanded SBM offers a wide range of opportunities for green, sustainability and social bonds, in addition to bonds from green economy issuers, as the need for investors and companies to manage climate risks and create impact becomes ever more important.

Sustainable Bond Market in numbers

SBM is home to the first certified green bonds out of China, India, the Middle East and first sovereign green bonds from Asia Pacific and the Americas.
