Green Bonds

Chile is strongly committed to climate action, environmental protection and sustainable growth. Reflecting this commitment, Chile is the first country in the Americas to issue Green Bonds. Green Bonds are a tool to channel investments towards green assets, contributing to further financial development and promoting national financial innovation that supports the country’s sustainable development path, low in carbon emissions, with strong climate resilience.

According to international best practice, Chile’s Green Bonds were structured in accordance with Chile’s Green Bond Framework. This document was prepared by the Ministry of Finance in coordination with other sectorial ministries and the support of the Inter-American Development Bank.

Considering Paris’ Agreement commitments, in 2020 Chile presented an update of its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC). In this context and responding to its funding commitments, the Ministry of Finance, in coordination with the Ministry of the Environment, developed a Financial Strategy on Climate Change, which included the creation of the Public-Private Green Finance Table (Agreement, Declaration, Survey, Workshops to generate capacities), the research to generate data and analysis (Green Growth Opportunities for the Decarbonisation Goal for Chile), and the promotion of financial instruments to fund these green initiatives, such as Green Bonds. Other institutions of the financial sector have already contributed with its own strategies to face climate change (CMF).
