Green Financing

We have a key role in shaping what life is like in London. We are committed to creating a fairer, greener, healthier and more prosperous city. The Mayor's Transport Strategy sets a target for 80 per cent of all journeys to be made on foot, by cycle or using public transport by 2041. By improving and expanding public transport, we can make people's lives easier and increase the appeal of sustainable travel.

We issued our debut sterling Green Bond in April 2015 to contribute to the financing of five eligible green project categories, as detailed in our 2015 Green Bond framework. DNV GL Business Assurance Services Limited (DNV GL) provided a second party opinion of the 2015 Green Bond framework, including an assessment of the alignment with the Green Bond principles and a review of the environmental benefits of the eligible green project categories.

We have since expanded on our 2015 Green Bond framework, publishing the new Green Bond framework in February 2020. This framework is in accordance with the ICMA Green Bond Principles 2018.

We engaged Sustainalytics to provide a Second Party Opinion on the new Green Bond framework to confirm its alignment with the ICMA Green Bond Principles 2018.
