Green Bonds Market 2.0: Scaling-up while ensuring environmental integrity
Innovate4climate – Finance & Markets Week
I4CE speaks at the side-event on Green Bonds organized by Climate-KIC and South Pole.
Tuesday, 23 May
11:30 – 12:30 – Room 8
“The Green Bond Market has been growing strongly over the past years, reaching a volume of USD 81 billion in 2016. However, several stakeholders highlight concerns regarding the environmental integrity and transparency of green bonds. These concerns are reflected in several recent publications (e.g. OECD, I4CE, CICERO), which call for greater standardisation and transparency in the impact measurement of green bonds. This side event will feature a round table with key stakeholders and thought leaders on Green Bonds about the current status of the market and its needs to enable further growth while ensuring the environmental integrity. The event will be structured as a panel discussion with contributions from market regulators, green bond issuers, buyers and service providers, followed by an open debate with the audience. “
