TIME AGENDA  
09:00 Masterclass A
Structuring Successful Green Bonds: From Establishing ESG Ratings To Acquiring Anchor Investors And Compliance Monitoring For New Bond Issues
 
  Green bonds set a new annual high last year, with more than $140 billion issued globally. But with the waters around green financing as muddied as they are, tapping the rising demand for these bonds calls for a variety of measures to maintain investor trust and confidence. Successful green bond issuers must tailor-make green bond frameworks incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) ratings, implement strong compliance and reporting practices, secure anchor investors and more. Let Stefan Ullrich, Director Sustainable Finance of Paia Consulting, guide you through all these in this exclusive masterclass.

13:00 Masterclass B
Understanding The Emerging Differences In Green Bond Standards For Green Bond Issuance
 
  Investing green is easier said than done. Green bonds can currently be issued under a variety of voluntary standards, with no universal compliance with the main green financing frameworks. The uncertainty this creates for investors’ poses risks of ‘greenwashing’ – where green bonds are used to fund non-green projects – and demands clearer understanding of the finer points of what exactly makes a green bond. Learn what these are and how your organization can issue credible, transparent and effective green bonds, in this masterclass headed by Cedric Riamund, Director of Emerging Market Research of Climate Bonds Initiative.
