South Africa is considering which areas of the current budget could be financed by the issuance of so-called green bonds, according to Dondo Mogajane, director-general of the National Treasury.

Mogajane made the comments at a conference organized by JSE Ltd. and sponsored by Citibank and Absa Group Ltd. that’s closed to the media. A recording of his comments was reviewed by Bloomberg.
