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 Financing Business supports the Single-Family and Multifamily housing market by financing homes and communities that meet energy and water saving standards. We offer investors green bonds that build upon our mission and positively impact housing infrastructure and the environment.
