Event overview


ICMA was pleased to partner with vdp and The Covered Bond Report for a virtual event, “Taxonomy takeaways for buildings: reprieve for green covered bonds?”, taking place on 27 April 2021.

A panel of experts explored the buildings criteria of the EU Taxonomy, addressing among others:

•    Have the technical screening criteria for buildings been set at an appropriate level to meet the overarching climate goals or are they overambitious?
•    What will their impact on green bond issuance be? Will there be a viable market for issuance that does not meet the EU Green Bond Standard?
•    How practical is the Taxonomy from a data and usability standpoint?


If you have any questions, please contact ICMA events.
