The National Treasury Management Agency said today it plans to raise between €1 billion and €1.5 billion through the sale of its 11-year green bond and 30-year regular treasury bond on Thursday. 

The NTMA has raised €20 billion from bond issuance so far in 2020 from a €20-24 billion funding range, a target it increased earlier this year to shore up government finances after the coronavirus pandemic.

It said in July that its funding activity will be at the upper end of that range.
