Event Overview

Co-organised by ICMA and Vigeo-Eiris

Event overview

Major economies are now striving to meet the objectives enshrined in the Paris Agreement and especially to limit the global temperature increase this century to lower than 2°C above pre-industrial levels by cutting greenhouse gas emissions. Capital markets play a critical role in this climate transition process by ensuring the efficient flow of financing from investors to issuers who want to change their businesses to address climate change risks.
To support the growth of the market for climate transition finance, the community behind the Green Bond Principles, Social Bond Principles and Sustainability Linked Bond Principles has developed clear guidelines on the disclosures that should be made by issuers on their climate change strategy when raising funds in debt capital markets.
This virtual event, tailored for Asia-Pacific issuers and market participants, presented the new Climate Transition Finance Handbook and discussed practical applications and implications for the region.
