Financing the sustainability transition

A training for public and private companies and municipalities.


Virtual Classroom, 16 and 17 January 2023
Daily schedule below


Background

Even if sustainable finance solutions have been so far largely exploited by local governments and public enterprises, private companies have already started looking for alternative ways to fund their sustainability transition. 

For example, local governments and public enterprises in advanced economies issued Green, Social and Sustainable bonds in the early 2010s to fund specific environmentally friendly projects, even non-financial corporations and banks started issuing green bonds before sovereigns, with the first issues by entities in France in 2013. 

In addition to that, beyond Green bonds, a number of different funding opportunities are made available on capital markets and the banking system; and this programme deep dive into the most relevant ones.


Objectives and take aways

This course will be an opportunity for corporates to

 • Identify recent trends and potential future developments and opportunities for green, social and sustainability bonds, as well as sustainable banking
 • Discuss how the sustainable finance market works
