GREEN BOND TRAINING
In a world that faces critical environmental and social challenges, the importance of finance, and more specifically of sustainable finance, is being recognized globally as it plays a key role in attaining the sustainable development global goals and it gives market participants the opportunity to act in a responsible way. Sustainable finance approaches and instruments are fundamental to incentivise the transition to more sustainable practices, to reduce carbon emissions, and allow societies and economies to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change.
