Groupe BPCE completed on May 19, 2020 the placement of its first Green Covered Bond issue to refinance energy-efficient homes, for an amount of 1.25 billion euros

We assigned a Second Party Opinion (SPO) on the sustainability credentials and management of the Green Bond issued by Groupe BPCE. Our opinion is that this Bond is aligned with the four core components of the Green Bond Principles (2018) and we have expressed a reasonable assurance (our highest level of assurance) on the contribution of this Bond to sustainable development.
