The first Sustainability (Wellbeing) Bond programme helps Kāinga Ora contribute to sustainable, inclusive and thriving communities.
“We’re being asked to address the biggest challenges facing New Zealanders today – poverty, inequality and irreversible climate change.
Through building sustainable homes and communities we are addressing poverty and inequality in a way that protects the environment, and in the process, grows intergenerational well-being.
Our conduit to lead change is through our financing programme. We were the first organisation in New Zealand to establish a Sustainability Financing Framework, and the Wellbeing Bonds we issue are unique in the global market. Our Wellbeing Bonds attract investors focused on broader outcomes who value the contribution we are making to society.”
Jason Bligh, Treasurer, Kāinga Ora
