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.”

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

The Philippines is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change, due to its high exposure to natural hazards, dependence on climate-sensitive natural resources, and vast coastlines. The significant scaling-up of investment in green infrastructure is critical for the Philippines 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 and Exchange Commission (SEC) Philippines and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is launching the Green Infrastructure Investment Opportunities (GIIO) Philippines report. The report aims to highlight green investment opportunities in the Philippines and to support the country’s transition to a low carbon economy.  It 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.  

The report will be launched virtually on Thursday, November 26th 2020, 3 – 4:15 PM Manila time and will include a presentation of the report findings, a panel discussion and time for Q&A.
