Green Bonds for Green Buildings: Accessing a $25 Trillion Investment Opportunity – May 11 – Global

May 11 @ 8:00 AM - 9:15 AM EDT

- Free
EDGE certificates can be provided directly to Banks' buyers as proof of delivery on the developer’s promise to build green.

Join us on Monday, May 11 from 8:00 to 9:15 am (Washington, DC local time) to learn how IFC is helping investors to tap into the $24.7 trillion investment opportunity for green buildings. IFC leveraged lessons learned from its $5.5 billion investments in green buildings to develop a blueprint for financiers on how to accelerate their own sustainable finance programs through green construction finance, mortgages and leases.

The webinar, co-presented with the Climate Bonds Initiative, will focus on how banks, funds and corporations have realized the investment potential for green buildings through green bonds while integrating IFC’s EDGE green building certification. Examples will be provided by Bancolombia and Kenyan property developer, Acorn.

The webinar will feature Sean Kidney, Co-Founder and CEO of the Climate Bonds Initiative, and will be presented by Rusmir Music, EDGE Global Business Development Lead.

The webinar is promoted as part of the Green Bond Technical Assistance Program (a partnership with SECO, SIDA, and Luxembourg MoF), and will be followed by a Technical Overview of the EDGE App on Monday, May 18 .

More information on the investment potential for green buildings can be found in IFC’s report, Green Buildings: A Financial and Policy Blueprint for Emerging Markets.
