As you know, the global market for "green" bonds is rapidly developing and provides access to a large pool of investors. The funds from the sale of "green" bonds are directed exclusively to financing or refinancing of "clean" energy projects, - said the official.
Launch of the market will help achieve the set goals: 11% of "clean" energy in final energy consumption by 2020 year and 25% of "green" energy in total primary energy supply in 2035 year.
According to market participants' forecasts, the share of "green" bonds to 2020 in the world will reach 10-15% of the total amount of all bonds.
