The Climate Bonds Initiative aims to catalyze the debt capital markets to support low-carbon and climate relevant industries growing at the maximum growth rates needed to avert catastrophic climate change. Advocacy is an important part of that work, especially on:
- How financial markets regulation can be used to accelerate green development.
- How governments can stretch constrained balance sheets to mobilize private capital
This has involved representation at hundreds of forums around the world, at Climate Bonds seminars in Frankfurt, Sydney, Paris, London, New York and Boston and at the Commonwealth Secretariat’s Expert Committee on Climate Finance, OECD roundtables and climate finance workshops for the UN Secretary-General.
