According to the bank's website, the "International Finance Corporation (“IFC”) is considering an investment in a blue bond (“Bond”) of up to US$100 million to be issued by BDO Unibank, Inc. (“BDO” or the “Bank”). The Bond will be issued following the International Green Bond Principles and IFC’s Blue Finance Guidelines. This issuance will be the first blue bond to be issued by BDO and will also be the first blue bond issuance in the Philippines. "
Increased access to finance for blue projects: The most significant expected project level impact will be derived from an increase in access to long term finance for blue financing projects in the Philippines.
Sustainability: Beyond the Project, IFC anticipates that the Project will contribute to market creation through sustainability via innovation, demonstration/replication, and capacity building channels.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
