EU Taxonomy Explored: Talks with TEG Experts: No2.
EU Taxonomy on Buildings

Thursday 2nd April, 15:00 CEST (14:00 BST)

Sean Kidney in conversation with the two Convenors of the EU Taxonomy Buildings Group, Ursula Hartenberger and Fabrizio Varriale of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of carbon emissions.
Lowering the carbon intensity of the built environment in cities and urban areas needs significant investment.

Join us for a conversation about the challenges of driving capital towards sustainable buildings and net-zero by 2050 and the opportunities opened up by the Taxonomy.

Webinar: Introduction to Climate Bonds Standard’s Solar Criteria: Who Can Use It? What's Included? What's the Potential? Hear from the Experts

Investment in solar is growing as costs come down, technology improves and energy policies shift towards renewables. But clean energy development still needs a huge increase in funding and scale.

As part of this, we are seeing solar based green bonds now being Climate Bond Certified from Australia to India to Germany.  

The next Webinar in our 2016 Green Bonds 101 Series looks at the Climate Bonds Solar Criteria and asks:

What’s involved in Solar Criteria certification?

Can solar bonds help shift investment into the hundreds of billions?

Does certification encourage investors to back solar green bonds?

This webinar covered:

  • What is a solar bond?
  • Who can issue a solar bond?
  • How do they get certified? 
  • The value of certification?
  • What does the Climate Bonds Standard measure?
  • Evolution in Transparency and Disclosure:  self statement, second opinion, third party verification
  • Evolution in Standards:  self-set, principles, indices, voluntary standards, mandatory regulations
  • Real life solar project examples: Rooftop PV securities, large scale solar parks, integrating solar with green building design and more
