Summary

Combating climate change demands aggressive deployment of green assets and projects - and significant mobilization of capital. The next step should therefore be to tap into the enormous bond market, worth USD 100 trillion. Green and climate bonds have seen encouraging growth, forming a USD 500 billion market in a decade; prominent investors, regulators and exchanges have flocked to the market. Yet green bonds still make up just 5% of investment grade issuance, and about 1% of the overall total. This session will address how to grow the market further to make a more meaningful contribution to climate targets. This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and Climate Bonds Initiative.
