Green bonds were created to fund projects that have positive environmental and climate benefits. The green bonds market is targeted to reach $100 billion in 2016, with $16.3 billion already issued – the fastest growth rate ever recorded.
As Chinese banks and US corporations both continue to drive the market forward, national regulators are increasingly embracing green bonds as a way to meet commitments laid out in the Paris Agreement.
However, the green bond market remains small and lacking clear regulation, with no standardised process to assess green credentials. Increased amounts of mainstream investment are still needed to ensure that the scale and quality of green growth can be met.
Therefore, Climate Action is organizing a webinar that will unite key financiers and regulatory stakeholders to discuss what is needed to accelerate and amplify green bond issuance. One of the discussion points will be: ‘What are the key opportunities available in the green bond market?’
Join the discussion on how other low carbon finance mechanisms can sit alongside green bonds to help drive future low carbon project growth.
