International standards define sustainability bonds as loans used to finance projects that bring clear environmental and social-economic benefits. Green bonds are defined as loans used to finance projects and activities that benefit the environment. Social bonds are used to finance projects achieving positive socio-economic outcomes for an identified target population, with neutral or positive impact on the environment.

NSBN Sample Data

Join the Network


Our evaluation framework helps ensure that bonds are up to sustainability standards. Before issuers can publish securities on the platform, they must satisfy this criteria.



After that, issuers must submit an application to include their sustainable bonds on NSBN. Nasdaq will then confirm that your bond(s) fulfill the criteria.



Once Nasdaq confirms your bonds are fit for inclusion, we will publish your sustainable bond data and documents to its growing pool of investors.
