KBN Green Bonds

Green projects

Through our Green Bond program, we aim to finance the Norwegian local sector's transition to a climate-resilient, low-carbon society. 

Proceeds from our Green Bonds are disbursed as discounted Green Loans to climate- and environmentally conscious investment in the local sector. Eligible investments are defined by our Green Loans Selection Criteria and our Green Bond Framework, which has been rewarded a Dark Green shading by external reviewer CICERO.

We are committed to driving the field of Green Finance forward. We have issued Impact Reports since 2016; in 2017, we launched a position paper on reporting methodology together with nine other Nordic public sector issuers.

KBN has been actively participating in the Green Bond market since 2010. By 2018, we have five outstanding Green Bonds that amount to USD 1 billion, NOK 1.35 billion and AUD 450 million respectively.
