CLIMATE BONDS' GREEN BOND TRAINING
As the leading debt instrument, the Green Bonds have been paving the path of issuances to other thematic labelled bonds to attain sustainable development global goals and provide the capital for long-term environmental and social infrastructure. They allow issuers to raise funding for projects that support the sustainable development agenda and investors to play an influential and positive role required to build a low-carbon, resource-efficient, climate-resilient, and inclusive economy.
The Climate Bonds Initiative has been collecting green bond data since its inception in 2010, and it has delivered training about it since 2018. The signature Climate Bonds Green Bond Training is a comprehensive and practical course on green bonds for a range of individuals who wish to gain a broad knowledge of these thematic labels. It comprises four learning modules, case studies, interactive discussions, and exercises to provide a valuable learning experience to participants.
The Climate Bonds' Green Bond Training objective is to provide an overall understanding of the role of green bonds in shifting financial practices to more sustainable approaches. And it offers an overview of how these bonds impact the way the market perceives sustainability and what attracts investors and issuers to the green bond market. The Green Bond Training discusses the green bond issuance process and provides comprehensive information on the market's size, key stakeholders, key investment themes, regional markets, and other vital elements.
To enhance the learning experience, we use a mix of structured theory, case studies, experience sharing, and practical exercises:
- Green Bond Basics: Current finance landscape, the sustainable debt market, green bond definitions, types and benefits, and its contributions to the global goals
- Setting Up the Scene: Market stakeholders, Green bonds principles and standards, CBI’s taxonomy and classification systems, the Green bonds policy landscape
- Process for Issuing a Bond Labelled Green: Pre-issuance including green bond framework, Issuance and post-issuance including allocation of proceeds and reporting.
- Green Bond Market Development: global and regional; Sovereign bonds market evolution, its benefits and impact and Transition bonds
