Executive Dialogue in São Paulo outlined investment potential for Brazil's Low Carbon Economy

On the 30th May, the parallel session to the Brazil Investment Forum 2017 saw national and international investors join agriculture and energy executives to identify large scale low carbon investment opportunities.

The Climate Bonds Initiative, in partnership with IADB(link is external) and EcoAgro(link is external), convened a parallel session supporting the Brazil Investment Forum to outline low carbon investment opportunities in Brazil.

Among the panelists were Marcelo Vieira, President of SRB (Sociedade Rural Brasileira); Jonatas Couri, Partner at EcoAgro; Marcelo Allain, Secretary for the Investments Partnerships Program; John Liu, CIO of Zurich and Guilherme Hirata, Executive Manager of Corporate Finance of Suzano Papel e Celulose.

Institutional investor and corporate participants met face to face and discussed on accelerating investment and sustainable long-term growth consistent with Brazil’s environmental and economic development goals.

Only a few days away from the tenth anniversary of the first green bond ever issued, Brazil is showing potential to be a world leader on green finance, offering large scale investment opportunities across its energy, land use and infrastructure sectors.
