The BDMG presents on Tuesday a framework, document that details the the scope of companies or projects that can be targeted for funding, a preview of the funding itself, which should be released in the coming months. According to BDMG, this is the first IDB-type operation with a development bank in Brazil that, despite the vast opportunities for environmentally and socially responsible projects, is only beginning to be found in the green bond market.
