Time: 10:00-11:00 CEST

Event overview

Organised together with vdp and The Covered Bond Report, this event will look at the latest Commission proposals for the EU Green Bond Standard (GBS). The discussion will explore the pros and cons of the label, tackling questions such as:

• What challenges will issuers face in meeting the standard?
• Is it sufficiently flexible to keep up with the innovative nature of the green bond market?
• How will issuers cope with ongoing changes to the Taxonomy and criteria to which the GBS is tied?
• Will investors prioritise GBS labelled green bonds at the expense of non-labelled issuance?
• Should the GBS be a priority within the vast bulk of the Commission’s sustainable finance initiatives?

Delegates will have the opportunity to interact with speakers, submitting questions during the Q&A sessions.

Further agenda details and speakers to be announced shortly. 

This virtual event is free of charge and open to all ICMA members and to interested financial market participants. Register now.

Registration will close on Wedneday, 29 September 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact ICMA Events
