CLIMATE BONDS' GSS+ BONDS TRAINING
As the leading fixed-income debt instrument, green bonds have also paved the way for the appearance of other thematic-labelled bonds. New labels and formats contributing to long-term environmental and social projects have arisen to further expand the labelled bond market, which is a clear signal that issuers and investors are highly committed to a greener, fairer, and more sustainable world.
Cognisant of the rapid growth and relevance of the labelled bond market and bearing in mind the strong appetite for these innovative debt instruments, the Climate Bonds Initiative has structured a comprehensive course on green, social, sustainability, sustainability-linked and transition (GSS+ bonds) for a variety of professionals eager to acquire broad knowledge on these tools. Climate Bond Initiative’s GSS+ Bonds Training blends a set of elements and information which aim at providing an overview of thematic labelled bonds in a thorough and robust manner.
The Climate Bonds Initiative has been collecting green bond data since its inception in 2010 and has delivered training about it since 2018. This training is a comprehensive and practical course on GSS+ bonds for a range of individuals who wish to gain a broad knowledge of these labels.
To enhance the learning experience, we use a mix of structured theory, case studies, experience sharing, and practical exercises:
