The Executives' Meeting of East Asia-Pacific Central Banks (EMEAP) decided to promote investments in green bonds through the Asian Bond Fund (ABF), the Bank of Japan said on Friday.

The bonds are labelled green by the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI); or as bonds that are self-labelled and externally-reviewed as green in alignment with the Green Bond Principles of the International Capital Market Association (ICMA).

The new rules will take effect from the index rebalance date of 31 March 2022, on which date all new bonds will be added and the new thresholds for sub-sovereign green bonds become effective. The sub-sovereign bonds that become eligible for index inclusion on 31 March 2022 will be included through monthly rebalancing over six months, each with equal weight, in order to facilitate a smooth transition.
