2021 will mark the 6th annual Climate Bonds Initiative Conference.

Over the past 5 years, the Climate Bonds Conference has become a pivotal event for discussions about how the debt capital markets are financing climate change.

Through the strong relationships forged with green issuers and investors worldwide, Climate Bonds facilitates engagement between the private and public sectors, aligning efforts and initiatives.

Climate Bonds is in the epicentre of the latest advances and happenings about climate-related investments, pushing the market forwards with the creation of fundamental tools to support market growth, including the Climate Bonds Standards, the Certification scheme to assure green issuances, the Climate Bonds database and global technical assistance.

The Climate Bonds Conference continues its mission to mobilise capital for climate action by gathering thousands of influential people and organisations in our events every year to listen to the leading minds in exciting conversations about the evolution of sustainable finance, and we are excited to have this year's Sponsors and Partners on board with us:
