Financing a Greener Future: How corporates are harnessing capital markets to transition to a low-carbon economy
The first half of 2020 saw $200bn in sustainable bonds issued globally with green bonds accounting for nearly half of that. As more companies commit to achieving net-zero emissions and as the world shifts to a low carbon economy, the CEO Investor Forum and Sustainalytics welcome industry experts to weigh in on the state of the sustainable finance market during this one-hour virtual event. Discussions will focus on the latest industry trends including the spotlight of a recent and notable green bond issuance. Our esteemed panel will explore corporate issuer and investor viewpoints around what is driving increased green bond issuances, barriers to scale, its role in the business’ long-term climate strategy, as well as best practices related to communicating and reporting on proceed allocations, the latest guidelines corporates should adhere to, the impacts of COVID-19 on the sustainable bond market, and more.
