We appreciate your interest in Connecticut Green Bank's Green Liberty Bonds, which will support critical investment in clean energy and energy efficiency projects and infrastructure throughout the State.
In April 2020, as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the Connecticut Green Bank is planning to launch a new program to increase and accelerate the flow of capital into markets that energize the green economy and extend the reach of its benefits to all of society - the Green Liberty Bond. In order for us to confront climate change and provide all of society a healthier and more prosperous future, we need to enable and empower everyone to support our transition to a zero carbon economy – creating the sustainable future and modern infrastructure we want to see in our society.
With a goal of achieving another order of magnitude of investment in Connecticut’s green economy in order to confront climate change, we will need massive amounts of capital – from business, government, and families. Everyone needs to be involved to confront climate change and the Green Liberty Bond is one way to unite in support of our clean energy future!
Bryan Garcia, President and CEO
April 23, 2020 - The Bond Buyer recently interviewed Connecticut Green Bank President and CEO Bryan Garcia and Managing Director of Operations Eric Shrago about Green Liberty Bonds and the role this new subcategory of bond will play in expanding clean energy investment. These small-denomination retail-investor focused municipal bonds are modeled after the World War II Series E bonds, and the proceeds are independently certified to confront climate change.
When Environmental Finance’s 2020 Bond Awards winners were announced earlier this week, the Connecticut Green Bank was recognized with two honors: the Award for Innovation – Green Bond Structure and the Award for Asset-Backed or Asset-Based Bond. These awards highlight the innovation and success of the Green Bank’s April 2019 $38.6 million in green asset backed securities, which was its first rated debt issuance, and the first ever solar asset-backed security (ABS) transaction by a green bank. The awards were judged by an independent panel comprising of 30 of the world’s largest green, social and sustainability bond investors.
IN AN INTERVIEW WITH CEFF, THE CONNECTICUT GREEN BANK (CGB) UNVEILED ITS PLANS to bring to market approximately $15 to $20 million of new $1,000 face value “Green Liberty Bonds.”
THE POTENTIAL BROAD APPEAL OF THE GREEN LIBERTY BONDS HINGES ON THEIR UNCOMMONLY LOW FACE VALUE – most municipal bonds are sold in minimum denominations of $5,000 rather than $1,000.
THE CGB HOPES THAT THE GREEN LIBERTY BONDS, IF BROADLY SUBSCRIBED IN CONNECTICUT, WILL ESTABLISH A PRECEDENT that encourages lawmakers to create a national green bond program analogous to the war bond programs of World War I and World War II.
