Why Luxembourg
Recognised worldwide for its commitment to sustainable finance and green bonds, Luxembourg stands as a prominent global leader in this area. Within the finance sector, numerous actors have consistently been at the forefront of developing sustainable business models, launching innovative initiatives, and implementing sustainable investment practices. In 2016, LuxSE showed this trailblazing mentality by launching the Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX), the world’s first and leading platform dedicated exclusively to sustainable finance.

On 28 February 2018, IFC and Amundi, Europe’s largest asset manager, successfully launched the world’s largest targeted green bond fund focused on emerging markets, the Amundi Planet Emerging Green One (EGO Fund).  IFC supports the EGO Fund through a Green Bond Technical Assistance Program (GB-TAP), which is a technical assistance programme funded by donors.

Under the GB-TAP, IFC is providing trainings for GSS bonds to staff of selected financial institutions active in the emerging markets.
