Invitation: Growing Green Securitisation in Europe: Roundtable: Brussels, April 24th: Can the EU lead the way?

Brussels, 2-4 PM, April 24th


What’s it all about? 

Opportunities now exist across the EU to grow a significant market around green securitisation and contribute directly to 2030 energy and carbon reduction targets.

The bundling of green loans into securities can unlock additional capital to finance the transition to a low carbon and climate-resilient economy.

You’re invited to join us in Brussels for a participative Roundtable to discuss the role of green asset-backed securities in climate finance and what’s next to build green investment.

In order to attend please register here.


Who should attend? 

Policymakers, regulators, market participants including banks investors, credit agencies and climate NGOs.
