Green Bonds Americas 2015
Building on the success of Environmental Finance's market-leading annual green bond conferences in London, we will hold our second Green Bonds Americas conference in New York on 7 October.
The green bond market is on track for continued growth after the value of issues trebled for two years consecutively. The market has seen a healthy $11.8 billion of issues in the second quarter, up from $8.7 billion in the first quarter, and momentum is expected to build in the second half of the year.
The US has seen particularly strong issuance from municipalities, and corporates Morgan Stanley, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and data centre firm Digital Realty have tapped the market in recent months. Meanwhile, Sunrun’s plans to follow in SolarCity’s footsteps by issuing asset backed securities could point to further activity in this corner of the market.
Latin America is another source of strong potential growth. Brazilian food firm BRF recently issued a green bond, while Peruvian renewables firm Energia Eolica’s project bond scooped Environmental Finance’s Bond Deal of the Year award.
We look forward to discussing developments of this exciting asset class at our event in New York.
The conference is being developed in partnership with Bloomberg LP and is an invitation-only event.
