NHFIC has developed a Sustainability Bond Framework aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the International Capital Market Association’s Social Bond Principles (SBPs). NHFIC intends to expand the Framework to cover issuance of sustainability and/or green bonds in the future. The Framework governs:
The use of proceeds of bond issuances
The process for evaluation and selection of AHBA loans financed or refinanced by the bond
The management of the bond proceeds
The form of reporting NHFIC will undertake.
NHFIC follows market best practice by submitting the Framework and its processes for external review by an independent assurance provider.
