Deutsche Bank issues its first green Formosa bond

Deutsche Bank has successfully placed its first green bond in Formosa format, raising 200 million US dollars and attracting significant investor demand.

This transaction marks the first ever USD Green Bond issued by an international bank in a dual-listing across Taipei and Luxembourg exchanges.

“The transaction underpins Deutsche Bank’s determination and commitment towards ESG financing”, said Cynthia Chan, CEO and Head of Corporate & Investment Bank for Taiwan.

“It also reinforces the bank’s ability to navigate local markets to tap into opportunities to execute on its sustainability strategy.”

The proceeds of this transaction will help to fund eligible green assets including renewable energy projects such as wind or solar power plants and the improvement of energy efficiency for e.g. commercial buildings.

Deutsche Bank has been a pioneer in the development of Taiwan’s capital markets and a proven partner bank of choice for sustainable business activities, including leading Taiwan’s first ever green bond in Taiwan dollars for a foreign corporate issuer. The bank has also led the way in supporting European investments into Taiwan’s wind energy sector with project financing.
