The Swiss Stock Exchange has been a trading venue for green bonds since 2014 when the European Investment Bank (EIB) listed the first green bond. In total, 39 green and sustainability bonds with a nominal volume equivalent to around CHF 14.7 billion in various currencies such as CHF, EUR, USD, CAD, AUD and NZD are currently traded on the Swiss Stock Exchange.
To help strengthening sustainable investing and to facilitate investors' search for green and sustainability bonds, a "green bond flag" and a "sustainability bond flag" have been introduced on the Swiss Stock Exchange website. In order to identify the respective green and sustainability bonds, a partnership with the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) has been entered into starting in 2018.
CBI is an international, investor-focused non-profit organization with the aim to promote capital markets for sustainable projects. In addition to leading investors and banks, CBI's partners include nations, including Switzerland.
With the CBI partnership, the Swiss Stock Exchange takes the next step to give green and sustainability bonds a higher visibility and to support sustainable investing.
