Conference2020 Rescheduled – New Dates for September: Climate Bonds annual event now set for 2nd-4th Sept in London.

Ongoing impacts of COVID-19 cause shift in dates of annual conference to 2nd-4th September

Like many observers, the Climate Bonds Initiative is actively monitoring international and domestic developments around the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

This has now led to the necessary decision to defer our Annual Conference from its 5-7 May, 2020 date in London and reschedule it to a new date: 2-4 September, 2020 in London.

We cannot predict how the situation with the virus, and associated responses by Governments and health authorities will unfold, but taking into account the wellbeing of conference participants our suppliers and our staff - and the public interest - we have resolved on what is a prudent and responsible course of action.

Climate Bonds Initiative apologises for any inconvenience this decision may cause and hope we all share a common understanding on why and how it has been reached.

Where to from here

In our 10th Anniversary Year, Climate Bonds is committed to holding an event that brings together people committed to facing the climate emergency and building a rapid and sustained expansion of climate related investment throughout the 2020s.

To this end, we have reset the dates for September, in anticipation that the current crisis will have passed by then.

The new Conference2020 Schedule is as follows:

Training & Capacity Building:

Wednesday 2nd September

Green Bond Pioneer Awards

Evening: Wednesday 2nd September

Main Conference Day

Thursday 3rd September

Specialist Roundtables

Friday 4th September

Green Transition – Opportunity of the Decade

Climate leadership, transition action, brown to green and accelerating finance towards zero carbon are at the core of our Conference 2020 Agenda. The change of date does not change our objectives for this conference.

It also does not change our determination to recognise and acknowledge green finance leadership via our Green Bond Pioneer Awards.
