Commenting on the Green Bond Issue, Tata Cleantech Capital, Managing Director, Manish Chourasia said, “TCCL is uniquely suited to capitalize on the opportunity the cleantech sector has to offer. The Green Bond market plays a key role in funding projects that contribute to environmental sustainability. TCCL’s maiden green bond issue will finance eligible Green Projects in the renewable energy space.

We share TCCL’s clean energy vision to contribute to reduce global emissions and local air pollution,” said Marnix Monsfort, Head of Financial Institutions Asia, FMO.
