Introduction to the Nasdaq Sustainable Bond Network
Investing in tomorrow has a big impact on the world today. The Nasdaq Sustainable Bond Network (NSBN) furthers the investment process for sustainable bonds by allowing investors to source detailed information for investment due diligence, selection and monitoring. NSBN displays all documents, data and qualitative information submitted by issuers on an open-to-all website and disseminates the same information in a machine-readable format through proprietary market data feeds.
The Basics of Sustainable Bonds
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.
Our Advisory Board
By combining Nasdaq’s sophisticated technology with transparency and a vision for a better tomorrow, NSBN equips investors to make data-driven decisions based on how funds raised by these bonds will be utilized to help create a more sustainable future. Our Advisory Board is devised of international issuers, investors, investment banks and sustainability experts from various regions (US, EU, Asia). The board will help develop the network over time to best support the global sustainable bond market.
