Green Bonds are like Bitcoins. Everyone wants them, but do we know what we want? The purpose of this seminar is to explain green bonds, their potential and risks. Are green bonds the solution for sustainable finance? Market expectations of green bonds differ quite a bit. This gives rise to legal risks for market participants, for instance through ‘greenwashing’ or ‘tokenism’ of these bonds. Market transactions, including ‘Sustainability Bonds’, will be covered to illustrate the points above.
