The Authority issued a series of bonds designated as “Green” in May on behalf of the University of St. Thomas. “I am glad to have participated in this panel as I think it provided valuable insight into the designation process and the benefit that labeling bonds “green” holds,” said Executive Director Fick. “The Authority will continue to explore ESG considerations going forward and will take action if it will benefit the school.”
