Position Paper on Green Bonds Impact Reporting 2019

The document primarily targets persons engaged in impact reporting in issuer organisations, such as environmental officers, sustainability analysts and investor relations specialists. We trust it is of interest and value to investors, as it gives an overview of the reporting commitments made by this group of green bond issuers.We recognize the need to strike a balance between: a) a commitment to deliver impact reporting at a certain, manageable level and b) absolute, detailed and fully verifiable numbers on project level and in the local context. Notwithstanding the technical necessities involved in reporting adequately on impact from projects financed with green bonds, issuers should strive to report project information also in the context of how they contribute to the transformation to a low-carbon and resilient future, and other important environmental challenges
