Treasury Corporation of Victoria returned to green, social and sustainability bond issuance on 16 September with an invigorated and larger programme. The borrower wants its new 2035 sustainability bond to be considered a part of, rather than an adjunct to, its vanilla curve and as such it plans further to increase its volume on issue from the initial A$2.5 billion (US$1.8 billion).
Sustainability is a watchword for New South Wales Treasury Corporation in both its central roles as issuer of state-government bonds and manager of several public-sector funds. Key to its success is collaboration with government and strategic financial industry participants, with a collective aim to strengthen the system as a whole.
