New ICMA advanced course in Sustainable Bonds
9 February 2022 Sustainable bonds, which focus on providing financing for environmental and social objectives and advancement, surpassed the USD 2 trillion-dollar milestone in September 2021, 14 years after the first green bond in 2007. The various sustainable bond principles, for which ICMA is the secretariat, remain the foundation of the global marketplace and practices.
This course is designed for professionals who already have a reasonable understanding of fixed income but need to know more about the theory and real market application of sustainable bonds and all the ICMA principles (green, social, sustainability and sustainability linked), coupled with the rapidly evolving global policy, taxonomies, and other relevant regulation. We will use practical examples and case studies throughout the course to enhance the learning. The course will be further enhanced with presentations from leading market participants – e.g., investors, external reviewers and issuers.
