In addition, Ukraine is implementing needed measures so that to launch a green bond market.

According to Bezus, an interdepartmental working group has already been set up, and negotiations are underway with local government bodies to implement the first pilot projects.

"We are actively working to launch a market for these types of securities. The legislation envisages the legal basis for the issuance of green bonds,” the head of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency added.
