Methodology applied to the Green Bonds Programme of SNCF Réseau

A Green Bonds Programme involves the issuance of bonds by a company, international organisation or local government on the financial markets to finance a project or activity having an environmental benefit.

Since rail transport is one of the most environmentally friendly forms of transport, it falls within the category of activities that are eligible for this type of bond.

On 27 October 2016, SNCF Réseau issued its first Green Bond for the most part to finance the sustainable modernisation of its network.

SNCF Réseau thereby became the first railway infrastructure operator in the world and the first transport company in Europe to set-up a Green Bonds Programme. The company plans to adopt this as a long-term strategy through the issuance of one Green Bond each year.

This methodology guide now supplements the section of the 2016 report on the SNCF Réseau Green Bonds section, which can be found on the SNCF Réseau website. Further information on the company and the programme can also be found there.
