Danmarks Nationalbank, the Danish central bank, is working on its first issuances of green bonds, and they should be aligned with the new EU standards, says Insurance & Pension Denmark (IPD).

"The EU standard will probably create even greater growth in green bonds, which we believe is absolutely essential if we are to achieve the climate goals of the Paris Agreement and Denmark's ambition to reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions by 70 percent by 2030," says Tom Vile Jensen, executive director at IPD, in a press statement.
