Building sterling as a world-leading green bond market

This high-level, half-day event will review the issuance of the UK government’s first green sovereign bond, the future of the sterling green bond market and how biodiversity can be incorporated into investment decisions. The UK’s presidency of COP26 aims to agree global coordinated approaches to tackling climate change, including how to mobilise capital and develop sustainable taxonomy standards. This leading role in financing the green agenda is now more important than ever as the global green sovereign bond market exceeds £100bn and is only set to boom further, with the £15bn in green gilts.
