Germany To Issue 'Green Bonds' Worth Up To $13B This Year

The German government plans to generate up to 11 billion euros ($13 billion) for clean transportation and renewable energy projects this year by issuing so-called green bond, officials said on Monday. 

The step is part of an effort to meet demand for environmentally friendly investments and follows the path already taken by other countries, including neighbouring France. Each green bond will mirror a regular debt issuance by the German government, known as "bunds", which are considered safe havens for investors.

ADB Pushes Development of Public Transport System Amid Pandemic

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is calling for the continuous development of public transportation systems in the Asia-Pacific region amid the pandemic, as the impact of the health crisis will be felt for years.

During the opening session of the Asia and the Pacific Transport Forum 2020 yesterday, ADB president Masatsugu Asakawa said urban transportation in the region’s cities struggle to adapt in terms of financial sustainability and the new requirements for safety amid the pandemic.

“The pandemic has dealt the transport sector a massive blow that will be felt for years. Urban public transport is struggling to adapt, as enforced travel restrictions, coupled with reluctance to travel on crowded systems, contribute to sharply reduced demand,” said Asakawa.
