The 8th Annual Conference of the Principles
The Annual Conference of the Green, Social, Sustainability and Sustainability-Linked Bond Principles (the “Principles”) was held in London on 28 June 2022, hosted by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The Principles are referenced by 98% of sustainable bond issuers internationally and have become the voluntary global standard of the market.
The Conference agenda started with a session presented by members of the Executive Committee on the 2022 guidance of the Principles and the ongoing work programme. This was followed by expert panels on:
- the use of sustainability-linked bonds as part of a strategy for innovation and climate transition;
- the new guidance for sustainable securitisation;
- the application of the Principles in a wider context, including commercial paper and repo, as well as for high yield and in emerging markets.
