Green and Social Bonds: A High-Level Mapping to the Sustainable Development Goals

This High-Level Mapping to the Sustainable Development Goals aims to provide a broad frame of reference by which issuers, investors and bond market participants can evaluate the financing objectives of a given Green, Social or Sustainability Bond/Bond Programme against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Users of this document may benefit from the spreadsheet supplement which includes a more detailed listing of SDG targets mapped to the eligible categories of the Principles and is designed to be complementary to this guidance.

The 2019 edition has been slightly updated to i) refer to the latest version of reference documents, such as the Handbook - Harmonized Framework; ii) clarify that there may be co-benefits that span Green and Social objectives and that the classification is determined by the issuer; iii) recognize that a reference to the SDGs/sustainability does not necessarily indicate alignment with the Principles; and iv) add a sample indicator for SDG target 1.5 and refine sample indicators for SDG targets 2.4, 8.10, 11.6.
