Proceeds from QTC Green Bonds are allocated against qualifying green projects and assets for the State of Queensland that support Queensland’s transition to a low carbon, climate resilient and environmentally sustainable economy. In response to an evolving Green Bond market, QTC’s Green Bond Framework facilitates the issuance of both:
- Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) certified green bonds, and
- Green Bonds that accord with the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) Green Bond Principles.
Details can be found in the QTC Green Bond Framework. The QTC Green Bond Framework has been developed in line with the Green Bond Principles and is consistent with the Climate Bonds Standard. It has been reviewed by DNV, an independent third party, who has provided an assurance opinion confirming accordance with the ICMA Green Bond Principles.
Eligible Projects and Assets
The net proceeds of both categories of Green Bonds may be allocated to existing, new and ongoing eligible projects and assets that have an environmental benefit associated with the State of Queensland. Eligible project and asset guidelines are set out in the QTC Green Bond Framework.
Allocation of Proceeds

This may include proceeds used for partially or wholly financing or re-financing new and existing eligible projects and assets.
