Climate Bonds' GSS+ Bonds Training
As the leading fixed-income debt instrument, green bonds have also paved the way for the appearance of other thematic-labelled bonds. New labels and formats contributing to long-term environmental and social projects have arisen to further expand the labelled bond market, which is a clear signal that issuers and investors are highly committed to a greener, fairer, and more sustainable world.
Cognizant of the rapid growth and relevance of the labelled bond market and bearing in mind the strong appetite for these innovative debt instruments, the Climate Bonds Initiative has structured a comprehensive course on green, social, sustainability, transition, and other use-of-proceeds bonds (GSS+ bonds) for a variety of professional eager to acquire broad knowledge on these tools. Climate Bond Initiative’s GSS+ Bonds Training blends a set of elements and information which aim at providing an overview of GSS+ instruments in a thorough and robust manner.
The content of this capacity-building session touches upon global aspects of the agenda and the market’s comprehension of the topic while covering the needs of different audiences through a set of different training tools including learning modules, case studies, interactive discussions, and exercises to provide a valuable and diverse learning experience to participants.
Who this course is for
The proposed programme targets groups and individuals from the public and private sectors as well as members of civil society who are interested in learning about how sustainable finance, in general, and thematic labelled bonds, in particular, can incite the adoption of more sustainable practices in our economies. These include:
The programme is suitable for introductory-level learners, individuals with knowledge and experience related to sustainable finance, or professionals working directly or indirectly with the issuance of new bonds at different levels of knowledge and experience.
The course has no specific pre-requirements.
Expected learning outcomes
The GSS+ Bonds Training objective is to provide an overall understanding of the role of thematic labelled bonds in shifting financial practices to more sustainable approaches while providing an overview of how these bonds impact the way the market perceives sustainability and what attracts investors and issuers to the GSS+ bonds market. Additionally, this training aims to discuss in detail the use-of-proceeds labelled bond issuance process and provide comprehensive information on the GSS+ bonds market’s size, key stakeholders, key investment themes, among other key elements.
