At Fannie Mae, our mission is clear: to deliver stability and affordability to America’s housing market. We do so primarily by purchasing mortgage loans from lenders and securitizing them into mortgage-backed securities (MBS), which we then guarantee.
Our Green efforts support the Single-Family and Multifamily housing markets by financing homes and communities that meet energy and water saving standards. We offer investors green bonds that build upon our mission where the underlying collateral positively impacts housing infrastructure and the environment.
