 Environmental Bonds 2013 | London | 25 April

Capital markets and the green economy
 
At least $1 trillion/year is needed to fund a global shift to a low-carbon economy, according to the International Energy Agency and others. With government budgets under pressure around the world, it will be essential to mobilise large amounts of private capital to reach such a figure.
The global bond market is large enough to make a significant contribution and a growing market in green bonds – infrastructure bonds tailored specifically to deliver environmental benefits – is starting to take shape. The relatively stable, long-term returns from such bonds are ideally suited to the needs of many institutional investors.
Environmental Bonds 2013 will examine the risks and opportunities of this new asset class and highlight the best practices and policies that will attract the private sector.
