The Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) and Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) have joined forces on a new initiative and have the pleasure to invite you to an exciting virtual launch event on Thursday 25 February, 2021 at 10:30 CET (9:30 GMT). During the 45-minute webinar, we will unveil a brand new dimension of the Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX) made possible through a partnership with CBI.

With the global threat of climate change facing humankind, the need to mobilise capital to accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy has become more important than ever. That’s why we have decided to shine a light on climate-aligned issuers who are actively supporting the necessary transition through their environmentally friendly business activities.

The episode explores the role of a ‘Green Bond’ government bond to capitalise on growing investor interest in assets designed to fund environmentally friendly spending. While we see the use of proceeds divided in solutions focusing mainly on energy, buildings, transport and water, we also see the dominance of developed markets issuing 72% of the green bonds and emerging markets with less than 20%. The Joint SDG Fund was created to be part of the solution, to help low income countries in their sustainable transition to accelerate the Sustainable Development Goals.

Sean Kidney, CEO at Climate Bonds Initiative, shares the inside story of sustainable finance and the extraordinary growth of capital allocated to climate solutions. Our discussion covers investor expectations, climate risk, regulatory action, and more.

We have been caught up in the blame game of individual activity, which is a red herring”, says Kidney. “Most of what we have to do are systemic changes to our economies; it’s energy systems, it’s transport systems; it's urban development planning. These are the areas of the most important changes. Which means our world changes around us and we change within it.”
