KDB, Environment Ministry to develop framework to foil greenwashingBy Son Ji-hyoung
Published : Feb. 16, 2021 - 17:09
KDB officials said the move will ensure that issuers, including KDB, will use the green bond proceeds for environmental purposes and prevent issuers from “greenwashing,” in which companies make green gestures without meaningfully improving their environmental impact.
KDB added that the collaboration is designed to revamp its internal green bond principles, largely based on the Environment Ministry’s guideline unveiled in December.
KDB is one of the issuers along with carmaker Kia, auto parts maker Mando, commercial lender KB Kookmin Bank and shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries to join the partnership with Environment Ministry.
KB Kookmin Bank plans to issue a 100 billion-won green bond under the partnership with Environment Ministry by the end of March to finance new and renewable energy projects.
Moreover, third-party independent assurance providers that are dedicated to green bond qualification -- NICE Investors Service, Korea Ratings, Korea Investors Service and Deloitte Korea -- will also adopt Environment Ministry’s guideline by joining the partnership.
