Green Bonds

Funding projects that benefit the environment

Digital Realty is a leading issuer of green bonds in the data center industry. Green Bonds are standard bonds with green features, designed to support projects that have beneficial impacts on the environment compared to business as usual.

In June 2015, Digital Realty became the first data center REIT to issue a green bond and in January 2019, Digital Realty issued the data center industry’s first Euro-denominated green bond. We continue to pursue green bonds to expand our ability to access capital to cost-effectively fund the growth of our business through sustainable projects.

Digital Realty’s Green Bond Framework is aligned with:

  • Green Bond Principles
  • UN Sustainable Development Goals
  • GRESB Green Bond Guidelines
