    Green Energy

    Green investments are traditional investment vehicles (such as companies, exchange-traded funds and mutual funds) in which the underlying business(es) are somehow involved in operations aimed at improving the environment in a sustainable manner.

    These investments can be made by large scale green companies as well as start-ups developing green innovations or green products, like solar panels, wind-power electric generators, etc.

    Nonetheless the issuance of bonds, notes, securities and other investment products in order to invest in such projects also fell under the same regime.

    Furthermore, a new « environment Label » has also been created in Luxembourg. It can be delivered by Luxflag, a Luxembourg organisation which supports sustainable finance. The Label is granted to investment funds that apply vigorous environmental screening to the companies whose securities they invest in.

    The Luxembourg Stock exchange, with its 114 “green bonds” issued in 2007 (representing a total amount of $45 billions), has been taken a leadership role in the green bonds market. Pursuing its effort in green investment, it has decided to launch, as from mid-september 2016, a stock exchange completely dedicated to investments aiming at fighting against global warning.

    The issuance of such bonds can be structured through a securitisation vehicle, whereby a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) is setup in Luxembourg to securitise the flows linked with a local company active in the green energy or act as a “first lender” to grant a loan to a company abroad in need of capital.

    As a first step SPV issues bonds/notes which are subscribed by potential investors who then receive a yield which depends on the risk and value of the underlying activity, company or assets.

    With the Creatrust turnkey solution for bond issuance, it is now possible to issue bonds and hybrid instruments for smaller and medium-sized green projects as well. As long as the SPV does not issue bonds or notes in the public on a continuous basis, the SPV does not need to be regulated.

    Note issuance can also be linked with the issuance of tokens on the blockchain. The Distributed Ledger Technology indeed allow to issue, transfer and offer access to the capital market in a more flexible manner.

    The issuance of bonds or notes can be offered for projects starting as low as a few millions and with lead times of only 1 or 2 weeks.
