In April 2016, SEB started a strategic alliance with German public-enterprise company GIZ, on "Green Bond Market Development" in G20 Emerging Economies." The objective of the partnership is to build regulator, policy-maker, associations and potential public and corporate issuer capacity in Brazil, China, India and Mexico to achieve exemplary Green Bond issuances that serve as a benchmark for subsequent market development.
Since the start of this initiative, SEB and GIZ organised multiple workshops. The most recent ones was held in China, which is the largest domestic Green Bond market in the world today.
Peter Ling-Vannerus, Chief Representative for SEB in Beijing, talked to Christopher Kaminker from SEB's Sustainable Finance team, to talk about the conference and SEB's work with Sustainable Finance.
