As institutions increasingly seek to align their business models and performance with the health of their communities and the planet, Barclays is helping clients achieve those goals with green financing solutions.

In the first quarter, Barclays was a joint bookrunner on many notable US Dollar, Sterling and Euro green bond issues worth a collective $2.7 billion, ranking number one in green bond issuance.1

In conjunction with country and industry coverage, Debt Capital Markets and Fixed Income Syndicate teams, Barclays’ Green and Sustainable Capital Markets team executed thirteen transactions in the first quarter for clients in the public and private sectors. These bonds will support issuers with a wide variety of green projects and business initiatives, such as green buildings, new sewage facilities and public transport lines.

Many of the deals during the first quarter were completed with many Barclays colleagues working from home, having adapted quickly to the new environment while maintaining seamless execution for our clients.

Barclays is here to offer tailored financing instruments that help our clients further their sustainability and environmentally responsible agendas.
Susan Barron, Global Head of Green and Sustainable Capital Markets

In addition to top billing in green bond issuance in the first quarter, Barclays Investment Bank was honored that three of its lead managed deals were recognized with accolades in Environment Finance magazine’s recent 2020 Bond Awards: social project of the year; corporate social bond of the year; and corporate green bond of the year.
