The role of sustainable bonds in reaching the SDGs

Presented by

Responsible Investor in partnership with NASDAQ

About this talk

Amid multiple global crises, ranging from covid, to climate change, to the war in Ukraine, the UN recently warned that progress towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals is ‘in jeopardy’. Urgent solutions are required to direct global financial flows towards investments that tackle poverty, improve health, strengthen education, and protect the environment. In this webinar, sponsored by NASDAQ, we will explore the role of sustainable bonds – sometimes presented as ‘SDG bonds’ – in mobilising private capital to tackle the world’s most pressing development challenges. Join our discussion to learn more about how sustainable bonds can help impact-focused investors achieve alignment with the SDGs, and how the challenges in catalysing investor interest can be overcome. Speakers: - Ann-Charlotte Eliasson, Head of European Debt Listings and Sustainable Bonds at NASDAQ - Fabienne Michaux, Director of UNDP SDG Impact - David Uzsoki, Senior Advisor & Lead for Sustainable Finance at the International Institute for Sustainable Development Moderated by Ben Payton, Special Projects Editor at Responsible Investor
