Event Overview

The 5th annual sustainable finance conference from the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) and the Japan Securities Dealers Association (JSDA) will focus on the role of climate transition bonds, social bonds, and sustainability-linked bonds in encouraging ESG themed bond market.

Although we have seen considerable progress in the green bond market in Japan with an increasing number of issues from the private sector, as yet there has been less issuance of the newer products, transition bonds, social bonds and sustainability-linked bonds.
