The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has announced that it has released a 600 million euro ($685 million) green bond with a tenure of fie-year.
This transaction represents EBRD’s initial benchmark Green Bond in the EUR market, and its fourth benchmark-sized Green Bond. As one of the leaders in the Green Bond market, EBRD’s standing and credibility is steadily established amid the Sustainable & Responsible Investment community.
With an eye on the size of €500million, EBRD also engrossed demand from other high quality Central Bank and Bank Treasury investors, which saw the order book surpass €680million.
Fortunately, EBRD was able to be lithe in its sizing and upsize the transaction to €600million to gratify demand, while still tightening the pricing, the bank said.
