Masdar’s Green Finance Framework

  • Masdar’s Green Finance Framework (GFF) has been developed to provide investors and stakeholders with information regarding our commitment to allocate the proceeds of green bonds, loans and other financial instruments in a manner consistent with international best practices. The proceeds of these instruments are used to finance Masdar’s investments at home and overseas, in developed and developing countries, to the highest ESG standards. Our GFF provides the basis of all allocations and impact reporting in our annual ‘Green Finance Report’, which reports on allocated proceeds and project impacts in the form of energy capacity, avoided CO2, and energy generated.
