The Bloomberg MSCI EUR Corporate and Agency Green Bond Index tracks the EUR-denominated fixed income securities issued by Corporates and Agencies to fund projects with direct environmental benefits. An independent research-driven methodology is used to evaluate index-eligible green bonds to ensure they adhere to established Green Bond Principles and to classify bonds by their environmental use of proceeds.
