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, LSEG became the first exchange to set up dedicated Green Bond Segments. 

As the demand from investors and companies to manage climate risks and create impact becomes ever more important, our expanded SBM offers a wide range of opportunities for green, sustainable and social bonds, in addition to bonds from green economy issuers and most recently sustainability-linked bonds. 

The depth and breadth of London's markets provides a deep pool of capital to help lead the transition to a sustainable and low-carbon economy. LSEG provides guidance and support to issuers through variety of channels, including the Issuer Services platform and other Group services. Sustainable bonds can also be traded through MTS, Europe’s leading electronic trading platform for public sector debt.

 

  • Access a deep pool of capital

Sustainable finance debt instruments are an ideal way for business to tap into the huge $100 trillion pool of private capital managed by global institutional fixed-income investors.

  • Send a clear sustainable signal to the market

Issuing a sustainable finance debt instrument provides a signal that your business has a meaningful sustainability strategy, has identified material environmental risks and opportunities that the business faces and investing to deliver on them.

  • Build a stronger sustainability dialogue

The extra disclosure required to issue a sustainable debt instrument creates greater levels of dialogue between borrowers and lenders, improving your relationship with investors.

  • Motivate your people on sustainability

The process of issuing a sustainable finance debt instrument can galvanize management and staff around the concept of sustainability and the role of the business in delivering a sustainable future.
