Green bonds dominate the Japanese sustainable bond market and account for 46% of total issuance year-to-date, followed by social (30%), sustainability (15%) and sustainability-linked (9%) bonds.

The 6th edition of this annual conference focused on the further development of transition themed bonds, a deep dive into the emerging issues in use of proceeds bond market (e.g. green bonds, social bonds, and sustainability bonds),
 and expectations for sustainability-linked bonds in the Japanese market, with various case studies and key initiatives from the Japanese government and the private sector.
