CDPQ Looks to Launch a Green Bond
Posted on 05/20/2021
Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ) is launching a green bond. CDPQ was created in 1965 by an Act of the National Assembly of Québec to manage assets for public and parapublic depositors. CDPQ started a commitment adopted in 2017 to reduce its carbon intensity per dollar invested by 25% by 2025. CDPQ’s treasury department will be responsible for maintaining a Green Bond Register and will allocate an amount equivalent to the Green Bond net proceeds to eligible investments.
