Event overview

ICMA is 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 will explore 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?

Delegates attending live will be invited to submit Q&A.

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

Registrations will close at 17:00 CET on Monday, 26 April 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact ICMA events.
