PUBLIC EVENT - Joining the dots: climate, nature and the sovereign debt crisis
31 March 2023, 11:30-12:30 - including Q&A
Bruegel, Rue de la Charité 33, 1210 Brussels or Online
There is a need to finance the transition to a nature-positive, net-zero world in an increasingly stressed context of climate change, biodiversity loss and unsustainable sovereign debt levels. This event, co-organised by NatureFinance and Bruegel, will discuss how the issuance of sustainability performance-linked sovereign bonds that reward climate and nature outcomes can catalyse the called-for revolution in sovereign debt markets. NatureFinance will launch a new Sustainability-linked Sovereign Debt paper - ‘More for less – scaling sustainability-linked sovereign debt’ and Bruegel will explore their paper on ‘Delivering on the EU’s ‘net zero’ target: the potential of sovereign sustainability-linked bonds’.
