What is it?
A green bond is a debt instrument that allows the raising of resources through financial markets, investing these funds in projects with positive environmental impacts and guaranteeing a competitive return on investment.
This financial solution from BIOFIN seeks to strengthen the sustainable finance framework for the National System of Conservation Areas (SINAC), through the issuance of a green bond for investment in infrastructure of Protected Wild Areas (ASP). With this, it seeks to diversify and improve tourism services, which in turn will allow a greater possibility of expanding Concessions for Non-Essential Services and Activities (SANE) and will improve the income and financial sustainability of SINAC.
Improve the infrastructure of protected wild areas in order to increase visits and, therefore, the collection of entrance fees that support the financial sustainability of the Conservation Areas of Costa Rica.
