London Stock Exchange today welcomed Transport for London

London Stock Exchange today welcomed Transport for London (TfL) to open the market following the listing of its Green Bond on the LSE’s designated Green Bond segment.

The market opening ceremony celebrates the listing of TfL’s debut £400m Green Bond on the designated Green Bond segment.  TfL issued the Green Bond in April 2015 and with a 10 year tenor, it represented the longest Sterling Green Bond at the time of issuance.  It was also the first Green Bond framework developed purely for sustainable transport.

Mike Brown MVO, Commissioner, Transport for London, said:

“I am very pleased to be able to open the market this morning. At TfL, our purpose is to keep London working, growing, and make it a better place to live by providing safe, reliable and sustainable transport. Through our Green Bond, we have demonstrated our continuing commitment to sustainable transport, as shown by the environmental benefits of a number of our key projects and schemes.”
