We are glad to announce that our seminar on Green bonds has been selected as a Highlight event of Green Week 2016! Green Week is Europe's biggest annual occasion to debate and discuss European environment policy, bringing together participants from government, industry, non-governmental organisations, academia and the media for a unique exchange of ideas.
On Wednesday 1 June in Stockholm Nordic experts and politicians will discuss market trends and current challenges in climate-friendly investment projects and what needs to be done to ensure that green bonds are a safe investment in the environment.
Nordic institutions and climate experts have been the driving force behind the development of Green bonds and interest is now growing throughout Europe. To ensure that the positive developments will not turn into disappointment, it is crucial to assure investors that the green bonds really are used to fund projects that benefit the environment.
Meet Christopher Flensborg, one of the original architects of the green bonds and Head of Sustainable Products at SEB and Jens C. Hellerup, Head of Funding and Investor Relations at the Nordic Investment Bank. Helena Lindahl, manager of SPP’s Green Bond Fund, Penilla Gunther (KD), Nordic Council, Jytte Guteland (S), European Parliament and Gustav Hemming (C), Stockholm County Council are also taking part in the discussion.
Moderator: Johan Hassel, Global Utmaning.
The seminar is a collaboration between the Nordic Council of Ministers' information office in Stockholm, and Global Utmaning, (Global Challenge) an independent Swedish think tank.
Date: Wednesday 1 June, 12:00 -13:30 (a light lunch will be served at 11:30).
Venue: Fredsgatan 12 Stockholm (if you need elevator please use the entrance at Jakobsgatan 27c)
