Event Details

Ceres and the Climate Bonds Initiative are hosts to a roundtable discussion on sustainable infrastructure, green finance and green bonds.

Participants will come from a cross-section of investors, issuers and underwriters.  In keeping with the Summit’s intent to move green finance and investment forward, we plan to include prospective issuers of green bonds representing cities and companies.  Our goal is to provide fresh perspectives on engaging more issuers on the local, regional and global levels.

The session will include strategies used by cities and other sub-nationals to address the long term risks of climate change and the path that led them to using a green-labeled bond to finance those projects, and practical steps the group members can take to energize the taxable green bond market, especially in the U.S.

Investors, issuers and underwriters will be called on to share workable tactics, and government entities and companies that have not yet issued a green bond will have the opportunity to hear from peers and also from investors concerning the criteria they value when investing in long term debt.

The Global Climate Action Summit is an opportunity to think outside the box about extending the scope and scale of green finance and investment.  The green bond market in the U.S. and elsewhere can certainly benefit from that, as can finding ways for institutional capital to support green projects in the developing economies with appropriate risk-adjusted returns.
