Join Accountancy Europe and EACB for a webinar on how to build a credible green bond market.
With the European Green Deal, the European Commission (EC) sets Europe on a path to become climate neutral by 2050. Achieving this objective requires massive investments and green bonds are a key tool to help channel funds towards green projects.
The European Green Bond Standard (EUGBS) for EU green bonds issuanceintroduces requirements aiming at reducing uncertainties for issuers and investors and bringing credibility to the green bond market. Together with our speakers, we will debate the proposal’s key elements and related issues as well as how to build a credible green bond market.

Now at @accountancyEU webinar on EU Green Bond Standard. Discussing my draft report to be *published today*, and efforts by EU Member States to create extra lenience for their own green bonds. Their approach is intellectually lazy and will prevent the creation of a liquid market https://t.co/7vRxWuFAnM
