Driving Green Finance: Green Bonds and Other Financial Instruments

16 Aug Driving Green Finance: Green Bonds and Other Financial Instruments

There is massive potential to “green” the financial sector but implementing it remains hazy for many. For one, what defines green finance continues to be debated while significant progress requires a collaborative effort.

Still, small steps must be taken and there is interest to leverage existing financial instruments to expand the uptake of green finance. Green bonds for instance, is gaining prominence in Singapore.

Earlier this year, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) sought to incentivize the issuance of green bonds by introducing a Green Bond Grant scheme. Recently, DBS also issued USD500 million green bonds, with proceeds going towards green projects or assets.

In this respect, the SIIA is organizing the 1st Green Finance Working Group Meeting titled “Driving Green Finance: Green Bonds and Other Financial Instruments”. This event is part of the series of green finance discussions under the “Collaborative Initiative for Green Finance in Singapore”.

In this session, participants will examine green bonds and other financial instruments with a view to better position Singapore as a green finance hub and capture the opportunities in the region such as infrastructure gaps.
