How to build a credible green bond market
1 December 2021, 12:00-13:30
With the European Green Deal, the European Commission (EC) sets Europe on a path to become climate neutral by 2050. Achieving this objective requires massive investments and green bonds are a key tool to help channel funds towards green projects.
The European Green Bond Standard (EUGBS) for EU green bonds issuance introduces requirements aiming at reducing uncertainties for issuers and investors and bringing credibility to the green bond market. Together with our speakers, we will debate the proposal’s key elements and related issues as well as how to build a credible green bond market.
