Green OAT  
Green bonds fund projects that have a positive environmental impact. They differ from conventional bonds in that they carry precise and specific reporting requirements on the investments they fund and their “green” credentials, although the financial risk is the same for investors.

In line with the objectives set by President Hollande at the Fourth Environmental Conference in April 2016, and with the press release published in September 2016 by the Minister for the Environment, Energy and Oceans, on one hand, and the Minister for the Economy and Finance, on the other, Agence France Trésor (AFT) announced on Tuesday 3 January 2017 that it is about to start roadshows leading up to the first sovereign green bond being issued in 2017, under the auspices of Ministers Ségolène Royal and Michel Sapin.

The press release and press kit relating to this announcement are available in French on the Ministry for the Economy and Finance’s website.
