Driving Inclusion as an Orange Bond Approved Verifier
Diversity and inclusion have taken center stage in this new age of responsible investing. To achieve genuine progress, it's imperative to quantify and verify impact at the last mile to make every voice have value in the financial system.
Approved Verifiers catalyze a more gender-empowered financial system and tap into a new revenue stream. This paves the way for a new age of credibility - amplifying inclusion and transparency in sustainable debt markets.
Furthermore, those involved in this endeavor gain access to the Orange Bond market, providing additional opportunities to expand and diversify their financial portfolios.
