ICYMI: A big week for #GreenBonds & climate finance, with the #SR15 reminding us of the urgency to scale up green investment. In this string we’ll point to some of the events & moments from around the world that we’ve captured since Monday.
ICYMI: India: Giant state bank #SBI made a US$650m splash in the #greenbonds pool with inaugural issuance, funding #wind & #solar. In our special Post we profiled the bond, @SGX listing, asked when are more of global Top 100 Banks going to issue green.…
Still in India: our CEO @seankidney takes some time out for longer form interview with Priya Sreenivasan from @down2earthindia. Shares his [forthright] views on the $US7billion domestic #greenbonds market & its outlook. Worth the read.…

US West Coast: @CalTreasurer, @JohnChiangCA delivered his @pri_news San Francisco commitment to put Golden State greenbacks to good use, buying US$200m of @WorldBank #Greenbonds. Chiang’s also a strong backer of the @greenbondpledge & big green heroes.…
From the US West Coast we jump to Ghana on the African West Coast. @firstnatbankgh, @mofpedU @energy_min & #greenfinance experts gathered in Accra for an inaugural #GreenBonds Workshop. @olumidelala representing @ClimateBonds. Read more:… #GreenBondsGH
The Ghana #GreenBonds Workshop was a step forward for #greenfinance on the West Coast of Africa. Congratulations to @firstnatbankgh & the other contributors. A foundation has been laid for the future. Watch the very new #GreenBondsGH hashtag for updates in the months ahead.
London: At the @FT Climate Finance Summit @VWidge on message about #Greenbonds growth. US$1trillion annual issuance by end 2020 is a crucial investment milestone. It’s up to the top 200 banks & biggest corporate emitters to lead the market & get us there.
Back in Bali: A batik clad @seankidney CEO @ClimateBonds busy presenting on the big issues at multiple events. #BlendedFinance, #GreenBonds to fund #SDGs & Brown to Green Transition. Lastly, Infrastructure: Climate resilient, adaptive & fit for purpose in a 1.5deg+ warming world.
The Emerald Isle joined the exclusive club of Sovereign #GreenBonds issuers with a €3bn offering snapped up by investors.… The green Sovereign list comprises Poland, France, Fiji, Nigeria, Belgium, Indonesia & Lithuania & now Ireland. #roomformore
Off the back of the Ireland announcement the indefatigable @andytuit asked whether it might be time for Italy to act & issue a green sovereign. A question many other climate activists could be putting to their own governments.
And lastly for the week: @NVJRobins1 pointed to the big picture view from Bali of the smarter Central Banks. But is this latest warning & #SR15 enough to get global financial system actors to respond? With alacrity?
In a week, we’ve crisscrossed from EU to the Phillipines, NZ, US, Ghana, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy & back to London. Green finance is scaling up, but still slow & low compared to #SR15 figures. What will it take to reach the milestone of US$1trillion in #greenbonds by end 2020?
