Reuters: Greece may issue first green bond in second half of 2022

Greece could issue its first green bond in the second half of 2022, a senior finance ministry official said on Monday, joining a number of European countries that have issued green debt to finance projects with environmental benefits.

Finance Minister Christos Staikouras said earlier on Monday that the government was considering issuing such a bond without specifying a timeframe.

“It would have to incorporate mature projects before being issued,” said the official, who declined to be named.
