Environmental Finance has experience hosting successful green bonds events. The first event, in 2011, was pioneering and served as a forum for this nascent market. They have since continued this commitment, with annual events in London and now New York. The seeds of the Green Bond Principles were sown at the 2013 conference following a conversation between two investment bankers. The 2017 London conference attracted 300 delegates with a focus from issuers and investors. These delegates are decision makers across the industry, with more than 150 different institutions represented.
