Event overview

The sustainable bond market has already experienced continued rapid growth in 2019, with global issuance this year now totalling over $150.76 billion. As the market has grown the Green Bond Principles, the Social Bond Principles and Sustainability Bond Guidelines – voluntary guidelines for issuers, supported by ICMA, have become the definition for a credible international green, social or sustainable bond issue.

This one day conference presented by ICMA and ASSIOM FOREX, in partnership with Banca IMI, looks at the increasing involvement of the official sector in promoting green finance in Europe and in Italy with particular emphasis on the European Commission’s proposed Green Bond Standard and its interaction with the Green Bond Principles and on government initiatives in Italy.

Speakers from the official sector and the industry will discuss policy and innovation in support of the green bond market and how green bonds can be used to promote transition to a low carbon economy.

This event is free of charge and open to all ICMA and ASSIOM FOREX members and to interested financial market participants; Registration in advance is essential. Places are limited and subject to confirmation.
