The London School of Economics and Political Science has raised 175 million pounds ($230 million) through a private bond sale. 

The proceeds, earmarked for green and social projects, will help fund a net-zero carbon building development, energy efficiency across its existing premises, as well as scholarships and post-graduate study, according to a university spokesperson.
