THE APPROVED STATUS

Bonds that are rated a or b on the rating scale obtain the “approved” status. The status provides an indication for investors who are looking for high quality and truly sustainable bond investments and provides a minimum threshold for inclusion into RI or thematic ESG funds, mandates and indices.

The rating results are presented on the basis of a bond rating scale from a+ to d-.

The evaluation assesses:

  • Results of the issuer’s ESG rating
  • Potential controversies
  • Alignment to the Green Bond Principles.
  • Environmental and social benefits of each financed project category
  • Eligibility criteria the issuer has chosen for identifying the projects to be financed.
