Climate Bonds CONNECT 2023 Summary
Through its series of invitation-only in-person regional conferences and with a mix of a larger online audience at the Global Conference, the Climate Bonds CONNECT 2023 series of events, brought together key decision-makers and top-tier influencers at a series of world-class events which took place in key financial capitals around the world including Hong Kong, Bogotá, New York and London.
Themed 'Ready, Set, Transition,' this year's Climate Bonds Connect series, with a primary focus on transition, engaged participants in discussions aimed at fostering a credible global transition from brown to green. The discourse centred on achieving an ambitious, inclusive transformation aligned with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
“Investors should see the global transition as an opportunity for long-term growth and stability. The world has the capital necessary for this transition, but it needs to move — fast. Thankfully, there are more options than ever for investors to identify and support credible transition efforts. With 50 countries now implementing green taxonomies, and large-scale public procurement driving down costs, the green future is closer than ever before. But to get there every company, investor, and industry needs to put transition at the forefront of its operations.”
