We take environmental stewardship very seriously. Our Green Bond Program supports our efforts to connect the region and enhance its livability by providing a sustainable transportation network. Through this program, we offer fixed-income securities where the proceeds are exclusively applied to projects and activities with environmental benefits.

TransLink’s Green Bond Framework applies to green bonds issued by TransLink on or after fall 2018 and sets out the guidelines for the TransLink’s Green Bond issuances in accordance with the four core components of the International Capital Markets Association (ICMA) Green Bond Principles – Voluntary Process Guidelines for Issuing Green Bonds (June 2018).

The net proceeds of TransLink’s Green Bond issuance will be used to finance or refinance, in whole or in part, existing and future capital projects that provide environmental benefits to TransLink and the region, and support the achievement of environmental and climate goals.
