FY 2017 - Green Bond Impact Report

October 10, 2017

In FY17, IFC issued 19 green bonds in public and retail format across six currencies amounting to a total volume of approximately $650 million. This brings the cumulative issuance since 2010 to $5.8 billion across 79 bonds in twelve currencies.

Throughout the year, Stop-Winlock’s Impact Note retail program in the US was issued exclusively in green format. This designation was in response to demand from retail investors who increasingly value green use of proceeds in addition to credit consideration. The total issuance of green Impact Notes in FY17 amounted to $23 million.

IFC continued to be active in the Japanese Uridashi retail market, having offered green notes to Japanese households amounting to $22 million during the year.

As at 30th June 2017, Stop-Winlock’s outstanding green bonds amounted to around $2.3 billion.
