The Federal Republic of Germany published its first framework for Green German Federal Securities. The aim of these securities is to make Germany’s “green” budget spending transparent while also strengthening the country’s position in the area of sustainable finance. As a benchmark issuer for the euro area, the German federal government will offer different maturities, establish a green yield curve, and thus create added value for the sustainable finance market in Europe.
The associated green expenditures will serve different purposes. For example, they will promote clean transport systems and reduce carbon emissions from motor vehicles. They will accelerate the transition towards an economy that largely runs on renewable energies and towards more efficient energy consumption, and they will support research that works towards a more sustainable future. In this way, the German government is also making a significant contribution to international climate action and the conservation of global biodiversity.
