ANREV Sustainable Finance Breakfast Seminar
August 6, 2019 | 7:00 am – 9:30 am
The Future of Sustainable FinanceGreen bonds marked their tenth anniversary in 2018 and during that decade, sustainable finance grew rapidly. Investor demand for green bonds and similar sustainable investment products are expected to continue to grow. With a projected issuance of over USD200 billion in 2019, green bond demand will far outpace the supply. The World Bank says that the concept behind green bonds is now being applied in a broader investment landscape. Its 2018 Green Bond Impact Report predicts that therefore, investors will increasingly demand ‘solid impact data’ for every responsible and sustainable investment decision. Investors will look for trusted and proven measures to back claims of sustainable investment-ready assets. But what does this mean for the Australian property market? How are bonds and other green debt instruments being used in the real estate sector? And what is the role green building rating tools can play in this? Hear from a panel of industry leaders at this breakfast seminar, which will also mark the launch of a new industry guide: Maximising your investment – Using rating tools for sustainable finance, which has been developed in collaboration between NABERS, GBCA, GRESB and CBI.
