The Orange Bond Initiative™ Objectives:

  • Building a gender-empowered financing system that works better for everyone by supporting and applying a set of global standards, indices, and performance metrics for investing in gender equality.

  • Mobilizing new sources of capital for women’s empowerment at scale by providing the tools, training, and knowledge products that enable gender lens investment product development.

  • Fast-tracking gender equality and women’s empowerment by using capital in ways that value women and girls as solutions to a more resilient, green future.
