Bruegel Annual Meetings, Day 3 - In this session on the final day of the Meetings, our panelists will discuss the future of finance and its sustainability.
The proposed EU green bond standard will be less prone to ‘greenwashing’, and the widest possible set of issuers and jurisdictions should be encouraged to use the standard.
A net-zero emissions target is a powerful incentive for the low-carbon transition, but for bank supervisors, climate-related risks, not climate outcomes, should remain the focus.
Sovereign debt will be vital in stimulating sustainable investment, but information is lacking on how green public spending actually is.
This closed-door event will discuss standards for the measurement and disclosure of climate-related exposures.
In this workshop, invited guests will discuss priorities and proposals for the Italian G20 Presidency for a green local infrastructure agenda.
“We are not going to lead our society to a low-carbon economy by continuing to finance the status quo. “
The European Central Bank portfolio is skewed towards the brown economy, reflecting a bias in the market. Can and should the bank deviate from the market allocation?
Different EU and US supervisory approaches to climate risk may hamper efforts to work together and risk fragmenting global markets.
How could additional regulation incentivise investment while upholding the integrity of sustainable finance?
Invitation-only event to discuss innovations in green finance and sovereign and EU issuance of green bonds
"The current design of green bonds means they aren't fulfilling their potential. We propose an alternative: issuance of regular bonds with attached green certificates that ensure earmarking for green purposes. The new design would reduce financing costs and in turn would provide incentives to start a greater number of environmentally-friendly projects."
