As the State’s central financial services provider, Western Australian Treasury Corporation (WATC) plays a key role in financing the Western Australian Government through the issuance of debt securities in capital markets. WATC also enables the Western Australian Government to finance internationally recognised ESG initiatives through its Sustainability Bond Framework (Framework).
The Framework has been structured in accordance with the International Capital Market Association’s Green and Social Bond Principles and Sustainability Bond Guidelines. Under this Framework, WATC has the ability to issue green, social or sustainability bonds to support the Western Australian Government’s commitment to the Paris Agreement, reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and progressing the objectives of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
For more information on the Western Australian Government's broad range of ESG policies and initiatives view WA's ESG Commitment.
