Sweden’s sovereign green bond framework



This framework for Swedish sovereign green bonds has been developed in accordance with the guidelines in the Green Bond Principles (GBP), which was published in 2018 by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA). The work was carried out within the Government Offices in consultation with relevant expert agencies and reviewed by an independent expert.

The framework will offer investors a transparent way to ensure that bonds are green.  The Swedish National Debt Office will issue the bonds at an appropriate time during 2020.
