On 5-7 March 2019, the Climate Bonds Initiative is hosting Climate Bonds Annual Conference 2019 in London, UK.
Climate change is an extraordinary challenge facing the world. Trillions of dollars of investment are needed to urgently shift to a low-carbon and climate-resilient economy. Green bonds and climate bonds have become an important part of the green finance movement working to meet this challenge. While we will see nearly $200 billion of issuance in 2018, we need to see trillions of green bonds to make a real difference. The March 2019 Climate Bonds Annual Conference will explore how to scale-up the green bonds market.
You can count on coming away with the following:
Insights into the current challenges facing green bonds and solutions to those;
Appreciation of the role of regulation in taking green bond issuance to the next level; and
Confidence in your ability to make a contribution, based on practice-based insights from your early-adopter peers.
And don’t forget to join your peers to celebrate financial leadership and innovation with the 4th Annual Green Bond Pioneer Awards, which recognize leadership in the growing green bond markets.
Asset owners, investment managers, infrastructure and debt specialists, issuers, underwriters, regulators, and policymakers from green bond markets around the world, from the EU and China to Latin America and Southeast Asia.”
