The global market for green bonds, providing finance for tackling climate change and other environmental projects, is growing rapidly, with Q3 2019 seeing green bond issuance at a historical high of over $35 billion. In Switzerland, the momentum behind green bonds is beginning to build. This conference, jointly organised by ICMA and Swiss Sustainable Finance is an opportunity to hear about regional developments, with major Swiss issuers and investors describing the advantages of this form of finance. Additionally, we will also be looking at international trends in the green bond market, including green and sustainable loans.
