Today Mexico becomes the first country in the world to issue a sustainable sovereign bond linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for an amount of 750 million euros.
With this issue, the Ministry of Finance inaugurates Mexico’s sustainable financing programme and places the country at the forefront of innovation in sustainable financing instruments. In addition, the issuance allows the country to expand its investor base by accessing international funds committed to sustainable economic development.
