Governments play a crucial role in scaling up Green, Social, and Sustainable investments (GSS). Sovereign GSS bonds can attract the investment needed for sustainable development and help achieve the goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions under the 2015 Paris Agreement. In addition, sovereign GSS bonds can also be a tool for economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

We invite you to learn about the first Green, Social, and Sustainable Sovereign Bond Survey (GSS) that was based on conversations with 19 sovereign issuers and in which the different approaches and experiences of issuers were explored to allow a broader understanding of this market. Also, you will know the differences in the process of issuing bonds labeled by the private sector and other types of entities were highlighted.

The Consejo Consultivo de Finanzas Verdes (CCFV) and Climate Bonds Initiative join several guests to discuss the report's findings and the opportunities they present for the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) market at this event.

The webinar will also promote the publication of the Spanish translation of the GSS Sovereign Bond Survey report. Please follow the link to the report to know more before the Webinar:
