Consultation paper for disclosure requirements for issuance and listing Green Bonds
The Board considered and approved the proposal for initiation of public consultation process for disclosure requirements for issuance and listing of Green Bonds, which are in line with the requirements as provided in Green Bond Principles as recommended by International Capital Market Association (ICMA).
The issuance and listing of Green Bonds in India does not require any amendment to the SEBI (Issue and Listing of Debt Securities) Regulations, 2008 (ILDS Regulations). The issue, listing and disclosure requirements as prescribed under the ILDS Regulations will continue to be applicable, like any regular corporate bond issuance.
