Polish finance ministry considers green bond issue in Q1

WARSAW, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Poland is considering issuing green bonds -- designed to raise capital for low-carbon or clean energy investments -- in the first quarter of the year, the finance ministry said on Monday.

The ministry told Reuters in e-mailed comments that the green bond sale would be in euros. It said it may also issue a benchmark bond, either in euros or more likely in dollars, but gave no further details. (Reporting by Pawel Sobczak; Writing by Lidia Kelly; Editing by Catherine Evans)
