AIIB Launches Inaugural Sustainable Development Bonds Impact Report
The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) has launched its inaugural Sustainable Development Bonds Impact Report that offers investors a view of the sustainable nature and impact of AIIB’s development work.
The report draws on AIIB’s Sustainable Development Bond Framework which summarizes the policies that govern AIIB’s sustainable financing activities. Under the framework, AIIB has committed to annual impact reporting on the Bank’s overall portfolio and project-level results reflecting environmental and social benefits generated by its financing.
“This report is a transparent record of what AIIB is achieving on behalf of its Members,” said Jin Liqun, AIIB President and Chair of the Board of Directors. “Project impact stories show how AIIB is addressing clients’ needs while also making an impact among the Bank’s Members in Asia and beyond. As a growing institution, we will continue to enhance our approach to impact reporting.”
The report presents data on AIIB’s portfolio volume, alignment with thematic priorities and portfolio performance during the Bank’s first five years of operations from 2016 to 2020. It also focuses on 12 project stories selected from key infrastructure sectors that show how AIIB is making positive environmental and social impacts, including through investments in improving energy efficiency, enhancing urban sustainability, achieving climate resilience and catalyzing private capital.
“AIIB’s inaugural Sustainable Development Bonds Impact Report is intended to help investors understand AIIB’s areas of focus and demonstrate the sustainable nature of our projects,” said AIIB Treasurer Domenico Nardelli.
The AIIB Sustainable Development Bonds Impact Report can be downloaded from the AIIB website.
