Environmental Information Disclosure
by Financial Institutions and Green Bond Issuers
on Thursday 2 April 2020
Tsinghua University Green Finance Center
IFC – Sustainable Banking Network (SBN)
World Bank Global Knowledge and Research Hub in Malaysia
Jointly launched by Tsinghua University and the IFC-SBN in 2018, the Global Green Finance Leadership Program (GFLP) successfully held four events and attracted more than 600 participants from 59 countries and regions around the world, mostly from the emerging economies.
Participants found this program helpful, not only because it provided the most up-to-date information on green finance, but also responded to their local needs. However, considering the gap between the huge demand on capacity building and the limitations of physical conferences, it was decided that the future GFLP events would continue with both in-person seminars and on-line webinars.
This webinar will focus on disclosure by financial institutions and green bond issuers. On the one hand, environmental information disclosure has been one of the most popular topics in the previous GFLP events, and feedback from many GFLP alumni also revealed that they wanted to revisit this topic. On the other hand, the TCFD recommendations on disclosure has been published for more than three years, yet the implementations were quite different from country to country, and from sector to sector.
This 110min webinar has two sessions:
The first session will invite experts from financial institutions, such as banks and asset managers, to share their experience in implementing the core elements of the TCFD recommendations, namely the governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets.
The second session will invite green bond issuers, mostly corporates, to share their perspectives on both disclosure and green bond reporting, e.g. use of proceeds and environmental benefits.
This is the FIRST of its on-line series.
Please RSVP by March 20. Space is limited!
