In this April 2016 interim report, NRDC, CEEW and IREDA explain that a green bond is a fixed-income financial instrument for raising capital through the debt market, like traditional corporate bonds. The key difference is that green bonds raise funds for projects with environmental benefits, such as renewable energy, low carbon transport or climate adaptation.
