Event overview

The 2020 Green & Social Bond Principles Annual General Meeting took place virtually on 9 June, hosted by the London Stock Exchange Group on its digital platform. 

The GBP SBP Executive Committee and ICMA presented in detail the work carried out over the last year by the Executive Committee, the different Working Groups and the newly established Advisory Council. The results of this year’s Executive Committee elections were also announced. 

While focused on Green and Social Bond markets, many of these discussions were of relevance to other emerging asset classes, including Sustainability Linked Bonds.
