Usability Guide: TEG Proposal for an EU Green Bond Standard


One of the landmark reports of EU- Usability Guide for the EU Green Bond Standard (Guide) was published on 9 March 2020. This Guide offers recommendations from the EU Technical Expert Group (TEG) on Sustainable Finance, with its views on the practical application of the EU Green Bond Standard (GBS), as it was described by the TEG EU GBS report.
