Event overview

Major economies are now striving to meet the objectives enshrined in the Paris Agreement, limiting the global temperature increase this century to lower than 2°C above pre-industrial levels by cutting carbon 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.

The new Climate Transition Finance Handbook will be published on 9 December. The coordinators of the international industry working group of more than 80 capital market stakeholders including banks, issuers, investors and NGOs, who drafted the guidance, will present the recommendations and discuss their practical applications at this virtual event.

Admission: This virtual event is free of charge and open to all ICMA members and to interested financial market participants. Registration in advance is essential. Register here.

This event will be delivered via the Zoom platform.
