Green Bond Principles

CIBC Capital Markets is a member of the Green Bond Principles (GBP) initiative, a set of voluntary guidelines designed to promote integrity in the green bond market where capital is raised to fund projects with environmental benefits. Green Bonds enable capital-raising and investment for new and existing projects with environmental benefits. The appeal of Green Bonds lies in the ability to support such projects while maintaining the risk/reward characteristics of traditional fixed income products.
