SSGA Climate Efforts Align with the Climate Action 100+

Carbon Bond Initiative

Friday 1st May 2021 State Street Global Advisors joined the Climate Bonds Partners Program. The partnership allows State Street Global Advisors to support the global development of a capital market which offers the most transparent and effective route to mobilize capital to support the transition to a low-carbon economy.

With investors facing increasing pressure to integrate ESG criteria into their investment decisions and reporting, this partnership will further develop the creation of a trusted standard for bonds. In addition, it will support investors who want to use green bonds to improve the climate profile of their portfolios in a quantifiable way.

State Street Global Advisors is also a significant investor in green bonds and a founding member of the Green Bond Principles, which are incorporated in the Climate Bonds Standard.
