Brief description of the data offering

The Climate Bonds Social and Sustainability Bond Database is a comprehensive list of all labelled bonds with proceeds going to green and/or social categories and includes sustainability-linked bonds. The Climate Bonds Initiative collects, assesses and provides high quality social and sustainability bond data to a broad range of global market players such as indices, regulators, stock exchanges, asset managers and asset owners.

The data is available to partners through our Partnership Programme, with three partnership levels available. We deliver the latest issuance data to our partners on a monthly basis either via our Partner Portal, email or SFTP, depending on the partnership level and the partner’s preference.

Where and how do you source your data?

As with green bonds, Climate Bonds screens self-labelled debt instruments to identify bonds and other debt instruments as eligible for inclusion in the Social and Sustainability Bond Database. The screening references the Climate Bonds Taxonomy, albeit using a modified sector list rather than directly using the Taxonomy screening indicators. The sector list used for screening can be found in the Climate Bonds Social and Sustainability Bond methodology as published on our website.

What is the cost for your data offering?
