The Orange Bond Principles™

The Orange Bond Principles™ (OBP) aim to support issuers, investors, arrangers, and approved certifiers in facilitating Orange Bond transactions. To qualify as an Orange Bond, transactions are expected to align with three overarching Principles: (1) Gender-Positive Capital Allocation; (2) Gender-Lens Capacity and Diversity in Leadership; and (3) Transparency in the Investment Process and Reporting. 

Issuers will be required to provide investors with an overview of how they comply with the Principles and are encouraged to secure an external review or second party opinion from an Approved Certifier.
