In July 2019 our Board of Directors approved the Framework for Issuing Bonds related to CaixaBank's Sustainable Development Goals, including Green Bonds and aligned with the Sustainable Bond Principles, Green Bond Principles and Social Bond Principles. The agreement considers issuing green bonds, although none have been issued in 2019.
Furthermore, we are signatories to the Green Bond Principles since 2015, established by the International Capital Markets Associations (ICMA).
Since then, we actively participate in the placement of green bonds for projects with a positive climate impact. In 2019 we took part in the placement of 4 green bonds for investment in sustainable assets with a total volume of €2,550 million (€1,300 million in 2018).
