Tradeweb Joins Climate Bonds Initiative Partners Program
Tradeweb Markets Inc. (Nasdaq: TW), a leading, global operator of electronic marketplaces for rates, credit, equities and money markets, today announced it has joined the Climate Bonds Initiative’s Partners Program, a global movement seeking to mobilise bond markets for climate change solutions. Climate Bonds Initiative is an international, investor-focused not-for-profit organisation, promoting investment in projects and assets necessary for a rapid transition to a low carbon and climate resilient economy.
The Climate Bonds Standard and Certification Scheme is a labelling scheme for bonds, loans and other debt instruments. The rigorous scientific criteria ensure consistency with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. The Scheme is used globally by bond issuers, governments, investors and the financial markets to prioritize investments, which genuinely contribute to addressing climate change. The Climate Bonds Initiative has been tracking the green labelled market since 2009. By partnering with Climate Bonds, Tradeweb aims to promote the visibility and accessibility of green bond trading activity across a wide range of asset classes, and leverage Climate Bonds data to provide transparency and clarity around our Green Bond Trading volumes.
“As one of the largest green bond marketplaces in the world, Tradeweb is proud to become an official Partner of the Climate Bonds Initiative,” said Lee Olesky, CEO of Tradeweb Markets. “A sustainable global financial system is no longer optional, it’s a necessity, so we need to leverage available ESG data and research to promote transparency and integrity in Green and Social bond trading.”
In 2020, Climate Bonds screened Green bonds accounted for $79 billion (bn) of the total $82bn in Green bond trading volume executed on Tradeweb. This represents an increase of 65% in screened Green Bond Trading from 2019. The remaining $3bn in volume accounted for trading of non-aligned Green debt.
2020 Green Bond Trading Highlights:
$56.4 billion in cash rates led by global government bonds
- European government bonds ($43.9bn) and Other* Global bonds ($12.0bn)
$22.7 billion in global cash credit led by U.S. and European corporate credit
- European Credit ($15.5bn) and US High-Grade Credit ($5.7bn)
“Green investment is expanding in depth and diversity, and Tradeweb occupies a significant position in the market,” said Sean Kidney, CEO Climate Bonds Initiative. “We welcome them to our Partners Program and look forward to working cooperatively in bringing enhanced information and transparency available to institutional investors.”
“Tradeweb’s multi-asset offering gives us a unique vantage point into ESG trading activity,” added Simon Maisey, Global Head of Corporate Development at Tradeweb. “We remain focused on powering clients’ sustainable investment strategies with solutions that efficiently identify and highlight green bonds on our platform, ultimately providing them with a robust view of activity across a broad range of asset classes.”
As a result of the incredible growth green and sustainable markets have seen in recent years, a broadening number of government entities and corporates are now engaging with investors on ESG-aligned initiatives, while making an environmental or social impact. Tradeweb’s collaboration with the Climate Bonds Initiative helps market participants gain valuable insight into this trading activity, allowing a clearer view on how green and other sustainable securities trade in relation to their non-green counterparts. Tradeweb is committed to developing tools to identify green bonds across a wide range of asset classes, with green bond flags already available for European Government bonds and Global Credit.
* Other Global Bonds: AUD, NZD, JPY, CAD Government bonds, Covered bonds, U.S. Agencies and other supranational.

Tigo Energy Demonstrates Optimization to Installers in Brazil with Stark Renováveis Installation7.5.2021 02:14:00 CEST | Press release
Tigo Energy, Inc., the solar industry’s leading Flex MLPE (Module Level Power Electronics) supplier, announced today that Stark Renováveis has used the Tigo TS4-A-O to mitigate energy lost due to shade on their corporate headquarters in São José do Rio Preto, Brazil. Their confidence in Tigo’s solution drove the selection of the products for their own use. The Tigo solution gives installers and commercial system owners the freedom to choose their preferred inverters and panels along with the right features for optimized, monitored and PV safe systems. The Stark Renováveis team chose a rooftop PV system with 405 Wp modules organized in multiple strings and using GoodWeTM grid-tied inverters. The optimum placement of the modules was on a roof bordering a large construction wall which would ordinarily lead to shade and a degradation of the output. To mitigate the problem of energy lost due to shade, Tigo TS4-A-O optimizers were deployed to ensure the best possible system performance. "As
