Canadian green bond debuts on Dublin and Luxembourg stock exchanges

IFC has listed its first Canadian dollar green bond on the Euronext Dublin and Luxembourg stock exchanges.

The proceeds of the CA$ 750m five-year green bond will finance IFC investments in green projects, including renewable energy, green buildings, sustainable forestry, and energy efficiency.

“Ireland is determined to step up our response to climate change and this is why sustainable finance forms a horizontal priority of the government's strategy for the development of the international financial services strategy, 'Ireland for Finance'. The transition to a low-carbon sustainable economy will require significant investment in sustainable infrastructure and in this context, the listing of an IFC green bond on Euronext Dublin is a very welcome development", commented Michael D'Arcy TD, Minister of State for Financial Services, Ireland.

The lead managers of the listing were BMO Capital Markets, RBC Capital Markets and Scotiabank.
