Pre-issuance Checklist

The Pre-issuance Checklist for Social Bonds/Social Bond Programmes aims to give guidance on the steps for establishing a Social Bond Framework as recommended by the 2021 edition of the Social Bond Principles (SBP). Links to the different supporting documents (e.g., High-Level Mapping to the Sustainable Development Goals, Harmonised Framework for Impact Reporting of Social Bonds, etc.) have been inserted for ease of reference. It is intended to be a pragmatic and condensed tool for issuers and for investors. Also included are some common questions that the external review providers may assess pre-issuance.
