The 2023 Annual Conference of the Green, Social, Sustainability and Sustainability-Linked Bond Principles (collectively known as the “Principles”) will be held in Singapore on Wednesday 28 June with the Monetary Authority of Singapore as the Supporting Partner.

The Principles are the leading framework globally for the issuance of sustainable bonds and are the de facto standard referenced by over 98% of sustainable bond issuance internationally. The Principles underpin a market representing near $3 trillion of securities in stock, the largest source of debt capital finance available for sustainable projects and transition finance.

The full day conference agenda will combine keynote speeches and panel discussions with leading market figures and experts in sustainable finance. It will feature key updates on the 2023 guidance from the Principles, the Asia Pacific perspective, as well as the critical topics being debated in sustainable finance including regulation, market integrity and climate transition finance.

Admission: The conference is free to attend and open to all. Register now.

If you have any questions, please contact ICMA events.
