It will fund environmental and social projects such as water and sanitation infrastructure.

Citi Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS) has announced the launch of the Sustainable Time Deposit solution in Asia Pacific for its corporate and institutional clients.

Funds invested into the Sustainable Time Deposit will be allocated to finance or refinance assets in a portfolio of eligible green and social finance projects, Citi said.
