Once-Unthinkable Nuclear Green Bonds Are Coming to Europe

Europe’s green bond market is preparing to finance nuclear energy projects for the first time.

Electricite de France SA has updated its green financing framework to include nuclear after European Union lawmakers voted to give certain nuclear energy projects a sustainable label. A number of other companies are talking to investors about it, according to NatWest Markets Plc, one of the top 10 arrangers of environmental bond deals.
