Green Bond Framework

The Connecticut Green Bank’s Green Bond Framework provides a structure in which the Green Bank can more efficiently and effectively support its efforts to raise capital and deploy more clean energy through the issuance of green bonds.

Connecticut has been at the forefront of state-level efforts to combat the threat of global climate change. In order to increase investment to meet the 10x goals identified by the United Nations as the level needed to hold off the worst effects of climate change, the Green Bank will use its statutory authority (i.e., CGS 16-245kk) to issue bonds, including Green Bonds. These are key to sourcing capital for clean energy projects and providing a way for all residents, businesses, and institutions of Connecticut to invest in growing our green economy.
