Green Bonds in Mexico
In order to mobilize capital at scale urgently required to achieve China’s commitment to reduce emissions by 25 percent until 2030, the green bond pioneer Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken (SEB) and GIZ’s Emerging Markets Dialogue on Finance, jointly with their Mexican partners, seek to support the development of a prosperous and sustainable green bond market in Mexico.
To promote highest environmental, market and transparency standards, the Strategic Alliance (STA) aims to raise awareness, enhance practical knowledge and build professional capacity on green bonds as (re-)financing and investment tool. Core activities comprise a workshop series, roundtables, symposia and individual advisory support for key stakeholder groups, including potential issuers, investors, underwriters, regulators & policy makers, as well as external verifiers.
The events serve to provide a platform for learning and knowledge exchange through engagement with leading international and domestic green bond experts who share their profound knowledge and hands-on technical expertise on the pillars that constitute a robust green bond framework.
