The requirement of public agency issuers to inform investors through reliable and thorough disclosure is central to a well-functioning municipal market. However, with the continued growth of labeled debt over the last decade – particularly green bonds – issuers may not be familiar with the specific investor expectations for green bond disclosure. In May 2023, the California Green Bond Market Development Committee released a paper, Recommended Approach to Municipal Green Bond Disclosure, to provide insight on investors’ expectations. This webinar will explore the recommendations contained in the paper and facilitate a discussion between investors that participated in the development of the report as well as issuers of green bonds.
