What We Do

Verify Climate Bonds

We assess eligible projects under the Climate Bonds Standard and Certification Scheme, and we follow the procedures and criteria established by the Climate Bonds Initiative. We offer both reasonable assurance and limited assurance verification services.

Verify Green Bonds

Kestrel provides a second-party opinion on whether your bond issue is aligned with the Green Bonds Principles. We adhere to the protocols established by the Green Bonds Principles. We provide second-party opinion letters.

Green Bond Frameworks

Kestrel Verifiers can construct, review or update Green Bond Frameworks. A Green Bond Framework can expedite the verification process for Green Bonds and Climate Bonds.

Reporting and Compliance

We prepare annual reports on projects and assets funded by Green Bonds or Climate Bonds to ensure continued compliance with industry standards and build investor confidence.
