The Market for Sustainable Financing: Developments in Green Debt (FR)

The market for green bonds has boomed as governments and corporates scale up low carbon and environmental projects. The labelled bond market has expanded to include sustainability, social and SDG bond issues. What is motivating issuers to launch green/ sustainable bonds, and what challenges do they face in implementation? How do issuers make sure they are fulfilling their green and social commitments? Is a Second Party Opinion important, and what is involved in obtaining this opinion? This panel discussion will explore the experience of two very different issuers of Sustainability Bonds, the process to obtain a Second Party Opinion, and the expected growth in this sector.
