Investing in Gender Equality.
Investing in an Inclusive, Climate-Resilient Future.

The Orange Bond Initiative™ is the world’s first asset class built by and for the Global South and the 99% as a solution to financing gender equality. The Initiative’s mission is to empower ~100 million women and girls worldwide through unlocking US$10 billion by 2030.

Bringing together a global set of stakeholders to develop a gender equal world.

The Initiative is driven by a Steering Committee representative of those driving gender equality through their work in a variety of industries.


The Initiative’s name is derived from the color of UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5: Gender Equality.  Despite significant progress and research, gender inequality has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis and now some estimate it will take 130 years to eradicate the global gender gap. The Orange Bond Initiative™ will tap into the US$100 trillion bond market to place women at the forefront of capital markets as solutions to achieve the UN’s 17 SDGs and build a more inclusive, climate-resilient future for all.
