This invitation-only event explored recent trends and innovations in green finance. A first session looked at the issuance of green finance instruments by EU governments and the planned issuance by the EU itself. The second session looked at new instruments, in particular green certificates and sustainability-linked bonds. We expect that a focused discussion will be of interest to both issuers and investors, and provide input for the ongoing discussion around a new sustainable finance strategy and the green bond standard.
This event was only open to Bruegel members and a small number of selected invitees.
