Brief description of the data offering

The Green Bond Transparency Platform (GBTP) is a key, free-to-use reporting tool for issuers in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) that provides comparable, credible, and easy-to-access data on the use of proceeds and environmental impact of green bonds, aligned to international standards.

GBTP data is uploaded directly by the issuers and external reviewers and integrated in a public, easy-to-download database that includes green and sustainable bonds.

Granular data is provided by bond issuance and project-level, thus facilitating the understanding of disbursements to different types of green projects, and providing insight in regional market trends, project-financing structures, key performance indicators and methodologies utilised.

Where and how do you source your data?

The Green Bond Transparency Platform (GBTP) captures data directly from the issuers on their bond´s use of proceeds and impacts, and from independent verifiers who present pre- and post-issuance and conclusions on their reviews. Both qualified users voluntarily upload the green bond data to the platform, using tailor-made Excel sheets developed to facilitate the process and update their bond data based on the issuer's commitments and demands.

The GBTP uses blockchain technology to secure data and ensure reliability and traceability. All data is stored in a relational database.
