Reflecting on the whirlwind of 2020, through the latest in a market-leading research series from Climate Bonds Initiative.

The record-breaking third quarter of 2020 drove green issuance to its largest to date, a resilient resurgence despite the initial shock of the pandemic.

How have these competing forces affect green bond pricing?
Which global actors are the most prominent in the green surge?
What can we expect in 2021?

Climate Bonds Green Bond Pricing in the Primary Market H2 2020 examines the pricing dynamics of qualifying green bonds issued in the second half of 2020. The findings of the paper will be presented by the author, Caroline Harrison.

Sign-up for the insightful panel discussion lead by Manuel Adamini as they explore some of the themes arising in the research. These include:
- the ‘greenium’
- the extraordinary growth in green ETF assets,
- role of sovereign issuers in the growth of the GSS bond market, - how green bonds can contribute to the transition to a low carbon and sustainable future.

We bring you speakers from government, industry and finance as we look back on 2020 and look ahead to another huge year for green finance.

The role of infrastructure in Malaysia is critical to promoting sustainable economic growth, improving regional connectivity, and achieving low-carbon climate solutions in the country.

Climate change has already had significant adverse impacts on Malaysia, including increased annual surface temperature and rainfall, sea level rise, and other extreme weather events. The country has also witnessed the depletion of natural resources and an increase of greenhouse gases (GHGs) due to intense energy consumption for its rapid growth. Thus, the significant scaling-up of investment in green infrastructure is critical for Malaysia to meet its climate commitments, build resilience to the impacts of climate change and achieve rapid economic development.

With this backdrop, the Climate Bonds Initiative, in partnership with the Securities Commission Malaysia (SCM) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is launching the Green Infrastructure Investment Opportunities (GIIO) Malaysia* report. The report aims to highlight green investment opportunities in Malaysia and to support the country’s transition to a low carbon economy. This webinar aims to facilitate greater engagement on this topic between project owners and developers, and institutional investors. Green infrastructure and corresponding green finance instruments are explored in the report, with sector-by-sector investment options presented.

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.”
