Green bonds and green finance innovation

Invitation-only event to discuss innovations in green finance and sovereign and EU issuance of green bonds

January 26, 2021, 2:00 pm Bruegel, Rue de la Charité 33, 1210 Brussels Invitation-only | Chatham House Rule Topic: Energy & Climate

This invitation-only event will explore recent trends and innovations in green finance. A first session will look at new instruments, in particular green certificates and sustainability-linked bonds. The second session will look at the issuance of green finance instruments by EU governments and the planned issuance by the EU itself. 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 is only open to Bruegel members and a small number of selected invitees.
