[TOKYO] Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda on Tuesday voiced caution over the idea of the central bank buying green bonds, stressing that its stance is to support private-sector reforms by maintaining ultra-loose monetary policy.

Mr Kuroda, however, told a seminar that the BOJ would take into account climate-related risks in scrutinising the economy and Japan's banking system.
