  • Investing in Sustainable Growth, Innovation and Green Jobs
    Investing in Sustainable Growth, Innovation and Green Jobs
    Andreas Hoepner | Sean Kindney | Elena Philipova | Martina Macpherson | Theodor Cojoianu Recorded: Apr 23 2019 64 mins
    Are you a seasoned professional wondering how EU sustainable finance regulation is likely to impact the investment and business sectors, a student or an early career professional thinking about securing current or upcoming green job opportunities, a policy-maker or a global citizen concerned about achieving long term sustainable growth and development goals in line with SDG 8 - then this webinar is the right choice for you.
    One of the most prominent legislative efforts recently towards shaping opportunities towards a prosperous, inclusive and low carbon world is the European Commission’s Action Plan for Sustainable Finance. Sustainable Finance is the key cornerstone in the business side of climate change mitigation, as two of the best strategies to change corporations are 1) 'creating incentives for the 'financing of green activities' and 2) 'de-funding' those companies which insist to extract, process and/or burn fossil fuels against the evidence that by doing so exacerbates the dangerous effects of climate change . But, creating the right framework for Sustainable Finance to flourish is complicated and that's why the EC first called a High-Level Expert Group (HLEG) and now a Technical Expert Group (TEG) to support its work.

    The impact of such legislative efforts is expected to be profound across both the business and investment space, as both a risk to unsustainable business practices and an opportunity for those who innovate towards the achievement of sustainable innovation and growth.

    Panel:
    Prof. Andreas Hoepner, Full Professor of Operational Risk, Banking and Finance, University College Dublin and EU TEG Member.
    Sean Kindney, CEO, Climate Bonds Initiative and EU HLEG and TEG Member.
    Elena Philipova, Global Head of ESG, Refinitiv and EU TEG Member.
    Martina Macpherson, President, Network for Sustainable Financial Markets.

    Blended finance and the SDGs: examining how public and private capital can work together for positive societal and financial outcomes

    The OECD defines blended finance as “the strategic use of development finance for the mobilization of additional finance towards the SDGs in developing countries.”
    This RI webinar will drill down into key areas of the blended finance discussion.
    If achieving the SDGs requires a massive infrastructure build-out to provide clean water and sanitation (SDG6), affordable and clean energy (SDG7), and health centres and hospitals in urban and rural areas (SDG3), how can the blended finance of public and private money actually do this, and through what structures/terms?
    Expert speakers will present case studies on the integration of blended finance structures into existing investment strategies and explain how it can yield a positive return both for investors and communities.

    DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS) invites you to attend a webinar on rating Italian mid-corporates on 2 May 2019 at 3 p.m. BST/4 p.m. CEST/ 11 a.m. EDT. The webinar will be hosted by Valentino Daprile, Senior Vice President, European Corporate Credits, and Giuseppe Fresta, Vice President, Global Corporates in London.

    This webinar is inspired by the successful event “Italian Mid-Sized Corporates: The Market Evolution of Rated Bonds” DBRS co-hosted in Milan.

    The webinar will focus on the issuance opportunity and potential development of a bond market for Italian mid-sized corporates that could reduce the historical recourse to bank lending of Italy’s industrial system. It will also discuss how a rating can attract more bond investors, increase market liquidity and generate important pricing advantages. Lastly, DBRS analysts will discuss the opportunities of the private placement market for companies and investors and provide an overview of DBRS’s rating process.

    The discussion will last approximately 25 to 30 minutes and will be followed by an interactive question-and-answer session. DBRS welcomes all who wish to participate.
