Chile is assessing investor interest in a potential sale of bonds tied to its sustainable goals, a move that would make it the first nation to issue sustainability-linked bonds.

The SLB offering would be part of the country’s planned sale of $2 billion in environmental, social and governance bonds overseas this month, adding to the $4 billion raised in that format already this year. That would complete this year’s $6 billion external markets issuance target, Cristobal Gamboni, head of the Finance Ministry’s newly created Green Finance Office, said in an interview earlier this month.
