Largest development organisation in the Muslim world is aiming to issue a benchmark-sized green sukuk this year to finance renewable energy projects


« Our objective would be to get a benchmark, so a billion U.S. dollars, but the projects may not be that size … we may just do a smaller one, » Zamir Iqbal, vice president finance and chief financial officer of the IDB, told Reuters on the sidelines of a conference at the London Stock Exchange.

« I hope it will be this year, » he said, adding the bank was looking at renewable energy projects in Morocco and Turkey.
