Climate Bonds Connect 2022 Regional Seminar North America Sponsors






Over years, Climate Bonds’ events have become a pivotal event for discussions about how the debt capital markets finance climate change. Through strong relationships forged with green issuers and investors worldwide, Climate Bonds facilitates engagement between the private and public sectors, aligning efforts and initiatives.

This year our Climate Bonds CONNECT 2022 event series continues our mission to mobilise capital for climate action by gathering organisations and influential individuals from across the globe to hear from leading minds on exciting conversations about the evolution of sustainable finance.
