ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Sustainability-Linked Bonds (SLB) play a key role in funding a wide range of issuers to finance the transition to a low carbon economy. SLB are a forward-looking performance based instrument where issuers disclose their sustainability objectives, which are measured through predefined sustainability Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and assessed against Sustainability Performance Targets (SPTs) within a set timeline.
Developed and delivered by a combination of leading market practitioners and International Capital Market Association (ICMA)’s sustainable bond experts, this online programme provides a thorough and practical introduction to the essentials of SLB, including steps required for making an SLB issue. It introduces the underlying market drivers, evolving regulatory framework and the main features of the SLB product and market based on the Sustainability-linked Bond Principles (SLBP), including essential definitions of what constitutes an SLB issue and a detailed review of how the SLBP work.
While focusing on SLBs, the webinar also looks at developments in the green and sustainability bond market and ICMA’s guidance on climate transition finance. Climate transition is a key sustainability objective that can be financed by both green and sustainability bonds and SLBs.
