India's G20 Presidency positioned sustainable finance as a key pillar of action and prioritised the mobilising of capital flows at scale and speed for climate and sustainability. COP28 echoed this agenda.



As India progresses towards its 2070 net-zero targets, its success hinges on how well it can mobilise capital from international and domestic sources.



Climate Bonds Initiative and MUFG, with their long standing commitment to climate investments, are coming together to engage stakeholders across Asia and align their sustainability and decarbonisation goals with the region's broader energy transition and developmental agendas.



Join us in an exclusive dialogue in Mumbai, on 23 February.



Hosted as part of the MUFG NOW (Net Zero World) and CLIMATE BONDS CONNECT series of thought leadership events, the session will gather business leaders, investors, policy-makers and industry experts.

Discover the crucial role of the EU Deforestation-Free Products Regulation (EUDR) in our upcoming webinar.

With the FAO reporting a loss of over 420 million hectares of forest from 1990 to 2020, and the IPCC linking 23% of greenhouse gas emissions to land use changes, this regulation is a key step in combating deforestation.

The EUDR not only aligns with EU corporate sustainability and due diligence requirements but also poses significant challenges for supply chains, cost management, and global trade dynamics. Join us to explore how this regulation impacts companies and the global effort towards sustainable, deforestation-free supply chains.

The hydrogen production criteria were launched in November 2022 using an emissions intensity approach to define low-carbon hydrogen. These criteria were focused on projects, measures and infrastructure relating to hydrogen production. Now, the Climate Bonds expands the criteria to certify hydrogen delivery projects.



The Hydrogen Criteria apply to eligible assets, projects, decarbonisation measures, and entities relating to the production, conditioning, conversion, transportation, and storage of low-carbon hydrogen. It covers activities across the hydrogen value chain, except for end-uses, which are part of each end-use sector criteria.



The development of Hydrogen Criteria by the Climate Bonds Initiative marks a significant step towards fostering credible and sustainable hydrogen-related investments. By integrating scientific rigor with market usability, these criteria bridge the gap between technical precision and practical implementation. 



Join us as the global community strives to transition to a low-carbon economy, and know more about how the Hydrogen Criteria provide investors, organizations, and policymakers with a robust framework to channel investments into projects that are not only environmentally sound but also economically viable. REGISTER NOW!



Speakers:

- Sean Kidney, CEO, Climate Bonds Initiative

- Bridget Boulle, Director of Technical Development, Climate Bonds Initiative

- Marian Rodriguez, Senior Sustainability Analyst, Climate Bonds Initiative

- Emre Gencer, Principal Research Scientist, MIT

- Marta Lovisolo, Senior Policy Advisor on Renewable Energy Systems, Bellona Europa

Join us in unveiling a new chapter in green building investment with the introduction of Climate Bonds Buildings Criteria 2.1 for Climate Bonds Certification.

Building on our 2012 foundations, this updated criteria emphasises embodied emissions and incorporates the EU Taxonomy, taking green buildings investment a step further.

Introducing an expanded set of criteria for New Buildings represents a significant step change for the current buildings criteria and will have several advantages, including:

- Enhanced Clarity: It provides increased clarity regarding the utilisation of criteria for new buildings, simplifying comprehension and adherence to these critical sustainability standards.
- Harnessing Technological Advancements: By encompassing New Buildings, these criteria leverage the latest technological capabilities available in the construction industry, thereby promoting innovation and sustainability.
- Addressing Typological Gaps: Addresses the fact that not all building typologies are currently addressed in the Climate Bonds Criteria.

We call on investors, stakeholders, and industry leaders to delve into expansive opportunities in this paramount green investment sector. With certifications now available, let's collaboratively shape a sustainable, resilient future for the buildings industry, echoing our shared dedication to an eco-friendlier world.
