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

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

Orange is the colour of UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5: Gender Equality. Despite significant progress, the COVID-19 pandemic and climate crisis have jointly exacerbated the regressive effects on gender equality, and the eradication of the global gender gap is now set back by a century. The Orange Bond Initiative™ –  will focus on mobilizing the $100 trillion bond market to empower women as solutions to achieve the UN’s 17 SDGs and build a more inclusive, climate-resilient future for all.

The Orange Bond Initiative™ aims to achieve three core objectives: 

  • Build a gender-empowered financing system by collaborating on the development of a set of global standards, indices, and metrics for investing in gender equality.

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

  • Fast-track gender equality by equipping countries, capital holders, and corporations to invest in ways that value women and girls as solutions to a resilient, green future.
