Sustainable land use impact bonds: Turning nature-based solutions into investable securities

Inspiration Hub

The Kunming–Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework calls for the mobilisation of USD 200 billion per year in biodiversity funding. Complementing impact funds, sustainable land use impact bonds could unlock new types of private capital at scale. In addition to financing large projects, sustainable land use (SLU) impact bonds offer also a means to ‘aggregate’ several loans of smaller projects into a bond/debt security, making them investable by DFIs or institutional investors.
Imagine Impact Bonds is an independent white-label platform accelerating the issuance of impact project bonds, notes and certificates at affordable cost. In collaboration with UNEP, Imagine launches a new bond issuance program to boost the financing of sustainable land use projects. The session will present the principles of the Imagine Impact Bonds platform and benefits of the SLU impact bonds program.
