UBC Political Science and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Ottawa present the first in a series of webinars on green finance and climate policy in Canada and Germany:

Canadian and European Perspectives on Green Bonds and Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance: Opportunities and Challenges

Over the last ten years, Green Bonds issued by the private business sector as well as by governments and supranational institutions experienced a sky-rocketing ascent. The launch of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero brought climate policy to the international financial markets.

This webinar undertakes a stocktaking exercise: 

  • What is the state of green bond markets? 
  • What are the driving motifs for private actors to engage in this market segment?
  • Which hurdles can be identified? 
  • Are green bonds a public relations tool or is their financial performance superior to classical bonds?

Join the panel of experts from Canada and Europe to get answers to these questions.

Date: Thursday November 3, 2022
Time: 8 am PDT (Vancouver) | 11 am EDT (Ottawa) | 5 pm MET (Europe)
