2021 ESG Year in Review
In partnership with our stakeholders, including investors, we continued to help create access to more sustainable opportunities for borrowers and renters in 2021.
Sustainable Bonds - Green Bonds and Social Bonds
We help create opportunities for people to buy, refinance, or rent a home in the U.S. single-family and multifamily residential mortgage markets. By issuing and guaranteeing mortgage-related securities, we:
- Help facilitate the flow of capital into the U.S. housing market;
- Provide a stable source of liquidity for mortgage lending; and,
- Enable greater access to affordable home and rental housing finance in all markets and at all times.
Fannie Mae's Green and Sustainable Bond Frameworks align to global standards1 and are validated by second party opinions. Explore our webpages to learn more about opportunities for green and social investing.

We have been under conservatorship, with the Federal Housing Finance Agency acting as conservator, since Sept. 6, 2008. We also have entered into a senior preferred stock purchase agreement with the U.S. Department of the Treasury pursuant to which Treasury has committed to provide funding to us under specified circumstances. More information regarding the conservatorship and our agreement with Treasury is provided in our most recent Form 10-K, and may be supplemented by information in any subsequent Form 10-Qs, which are available under "SEC Filings."
