RIYADH: Qatar is set to launch its inaugural green bond in what would be its first external debt issuance in four years, according to its finance minister. 

Speaking to Bloomberg Television on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Ali Al-Kuwari said that “we’re ready to do it very soon” when asked about the move.

The official highlighted that Qatar is “not hungry for money,” but it will pursue the issuance “mainly to send a strong statement” in combating climate change.

One of the world’s biggest producers of liquefied natural gas, Qatar has not issued Eurobonds since early 2020, when it sold $10 billion of debt.
