 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.
Who should attend:
• Pension fund managers
• Insurance fund / asset managers
• Investment bankers
• Carbon market investors (eg carbon funds participants)
• SRI fund managers
Bond issuers:
• Bond specialists in development or investment banks 
• CFOs in larger corporates
• Treasury officials in national governments
• Finance chiefs in local governments
Environmental market participants:
• Carbon fund managers
• CDM + JI investors 
• Renewable energy project developers
• Energy Efficiency project developers
• Environmental lawyers
• Consultants

Distributions from private equity funds have improved greatly in recent years as managers have taken advantage of improving market conditions to realise value from remaining assets in their portfolios.
