On Tuesday, 18 July, Climate Bonds hosted the second Climate Bonds CONNECT 2023 regional seminar in Colombia's capital, Bogota. Drawing inspiration from this year's captivating theme, "Ready. Set. Transition.", the Climate Bonds CONNECT 2023 conference delves into this transition, exploring the power of sustainable finance in driving economic growth in the region, mitigating climate risks, and fostering resilience. The event showcased groundbreaking initiatives, strategies and opportunities that will accelerate the transition towards a low-carbon economy.
Climate Bonds Connect centres around facilitating a credible brown-to-green global transition that is ambitious, inclusive, and aligned with the Paris Agreement. During the event, ministers, regulators, investors, asset managers, and influencers discussed their views on developing a sustainable market and how credible, ambitious efforts to decarbonise the Latin American economy can help the region reach its climate targets.
One of the key takeaways was the need to create connections between organisations to grow the market, as well as discussion spaces to promote the sustainable finance market in the region. There are already instruments available, but the challenge is to promote and utilise them. The quality and number of attendees were a testament to the growing appetite for credible transition planning in LAC.
All the sessions will be available on Youtube in Spanish, except from Sean Kidney's opening speech, which is in English.
