Sustainable bonds for gender equality – the Australian perspective


ICMA, IFC and UN Women published “Bonds to Bridge the Gender Gap: A Practitioner’s Guide to Using Sustainable Debt for Gender Equality” in November 2021. The publication provides guidance on how social, sustainability, and sustainability-linked bonds could be used as useful financing instruments to raise funds for gender equality.

Building on the guide, this virtual event hosted a discussion with leading market experts on the development of gender bonds in Australia to date and gave an outlook.
