Climate Bonds Initiative

A great resource of webinars, recordings of webinars and presentation materials! 

Climate Bonds Initiative is an international organisation working solely to mobilise the largest capital market of all, the $100 trillion bond market, for climate change solutions.
 

They promote investment in projects and assets necessary for a rapid transition to a low carbon and climate resilient economy.
 

The strategy is to develop a large and liquid Green and Climate Bonds Market that will help drive down the cost of capital for climate projects in developed and emerging markets; to grow aggregation mechanisms for fragmented sectors; and to support governments seeking to tap debt capital markets.


Climate Bonds Initiative is an investor-focused not-for-profit. Their work therefore is an open source public good and falls into three workstreams.
