For the past five years GlobalCapital has sought to uncover the opportunities and myths in the exciting and growing sustainable and responsible capital markets — notably the growing green bond market — through our landmark special reports, published every September.
Since 2016 we have also joined forces with Euromoney Conferences to present an annual conference on Sustainable and Responsible Capital Markets. This year’s event will be held in Amsterdam on September 5.
In Amsterdam we will also be giving out our second annual Sustainable and Responsible Capital Markets Awards.
The awards, which were very well received at their launch in 2016, recognise the issuers, investors, bookrunners and second opinion providers that have proved themselves successful, innovative and forward-thinking in their SRI capital markets activities.
The awards will result from a market poll. We are inviting banks and investors to vote for the best issuers. Meanwhile, issuers and investors will vote for the best banks.
We ask voters to consider not just the largest issuers or banks with the biggest market shares, but also to reward innovation or boldness, the provision of expert advice in unpredictable times, or the ability to unearth new pots of investor demand.
The poll is now open now – please click here to vote now.
The GlobalCapital Sustainable and Responsible Capital Markets Forum will return to Amsterdam on 5 September 2017, delivering an insightful and informative one day eventhighlighting fundamental developments in ESG, responsible investing and sustainable finance via a stellar speaker lineup of prominent decision makers, thought leaders, financiers, issuers and investors.
Over the last four years, the Forum has brought together key government officials and policy makers, SSAs, corporate and financial issuers, bankers, and asset managers and owners. It has attracted hundreds of delegates, the highest calibre of speakers, and provided an unrivalled platform for thought leadership, networking, and comprehensive global and local coverage.
