Landshypotek readies ‘dark green’ Swedish, forestry covered bond first (Sustainabonds)


Landshypotek Bank is preparing to issue the first green covered bond from Sweden, a Swedish krona debut set to be backed by and finance forestry loans, thereby targeting “a very important part” of tackling CO2 emissions, its chief sustainability officer told Sustainabonds.
