SBN Task Force for Low-income Member Countries
SBN Data and Disclosure Working Group
The SBN Green Bond Working Group, established in 2017, responds to members’ interest in the global green bond trend and associated market opportunities. The Latin American Banking Federation (FELABAN), Moroccan Capital Markets Authority (AMMC), and Indonesia Financial Sector Authority (OJK) co-chair the group. The Working group is comprised of representatives and observers from 21 countries and 30 organizations—including the International Capital Market Association.
In 2018, the group undertook the most comprehensive assessment of green bond market developments to date in over 22 emerging markets and released a practical toolkit for SBN members in developing their own green, social, and sustainability bond markets. The SBN Green Bond Toolkit includes nine country case studies and a comparison of national frameworks from 11 SBN members as well as the regional framework of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Malaysia guidelines. Based on member experiences, it also articulates common objectives, a planning matrix, a roadmap, and a capacity-building needs assessment.
