New Issue for Green Savings Bonds at 5.70%

22 Aug, 2023

A new Issue of NS&I’s Green Savings Bonds has been released today paying 5.70% gross/AER fixed-rate over a three-year term. Savers putting money into Green Savings Bonds will be helping fund vital green projects across the UK as part of the UK Government Green Financing Framework.

Dax Harkins, NS&I Chief Executive, said: “I’m really pleased that we can offer a new Issue of our Green Savings Bonds at a higher rate from today. This is a great opportunity for savers who want to see a guaranteed return on their investment while also making a difference with their savings by helping to make the world greener, cleaner and more sustainable.”

The projects funded through Green Savings Bonds will include making transport greener, using renewable energy over fossil fuels, preventing pollution, using energy more efficiently, protecting natural resources and adapting to a changing climate. The first Issue of Green Savings Bonds went on sale on 22 October 2021. Since then more than £915 million has been invested in them.

The minimum investment in Green Savings Bonds is £100, with a maximum limit of £100,000 per person for each Issue. Investors need to be aged 16 or over to purchase the Bonds from NS&I. The full amount deposited will be held for three years and cannot be withdrawn during this time.
