This year the Climate Bonds Awards celebrates best practice & innovation in green finance with achievements concluded in 2020 by organisations, financial institutions & governments worldwide.
Since 2016 we have awarded 155 organisations celebrating the achievements of organisations, financial institutions and governments that demonstrated leadership through leading financing of climate-resilient and low carbon projects in a diverse range of nations and markets. After 5 years of championing the Green Bond Pioneers globally, our awards are expanding to incorporate newer debt instruments that support climate and other challenges embracing the broader landscape of sustainable finance. This is reflected in new categories for this year’s event that will keep growing over the years. Our 6th Climate Bonds Awards celebrates the efforts of organisations that have proven success in 2020 boosting climate bonds issuances and influencing their regions and sectors to reach the 100 trillion mark of investments financing the changes needed to reduce the emissions according to the Paris Agreement.
“We congratulate all winners of the 6th Climate Bonds Awards. This is a public acknowledgement to all organizations and governments that are at the forefront of shifting capital towards low carbon solutions and the larger transition to net-zero, providing real economy examples of where investment should be going. Particularly welcome are first time and pioneering issuers from emerging and developing economies, taking a leading role and adding depth and diversity to global and regional markets. In late 2020 we achieved the global milestone of a cumulative $1trillion green investment. But the climate crisis and its growing impacts continue to outstrip our efforts on emissions reduction. Acceleration to $1trillion in annual green investment is the next goal for global finance and governments. A decisive tilting of 2020s capital into green recovery, resilience, adaptation & transition is now required.”
