Demystifying Innovative Finance

November 7, 2018, 2:45 pm-3:45 pm

Green bonds, social bonds, impact funds, sustainable loans: Global companies are using innovative methods to fund sustainable projects, both within and outside their companies. But there are several big questions that can keep well-intentioned practitioners from exploring these strategies: How do they work? Have they been successful at achieving business objectives and sustainability impacts? What conditions are needed to set them up? This session will demystify these innovative finance vehicles with real-life examples of what they can look like and what they can accomplish.
