Acting as Issuer CSD for Luxembourg government ESG bond

In its role as Luxembourg Central Securities Depository (CSD), LuxCSD handled the issuance of the first sovereign sustainability bond, issued by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg contributing to the development of sustainable finance.

The EUR 1.5 billion sustainability bond was issued under the new Sustainability Bond Framework established by the Luxembourg government in September 2020. The Sustainability Bond Framework is the strategy structure established by a European country and aligned with the highest international standards and best market practice in the field of sustainable finance.

By providing the local infrastructure for this ESG bond issuance, LuxCSD is supporting Luxembourg’s commitment to sustainable finance and its leading role in the transition towards a low-carbon and more inclusive economy.
