Executive Training Program

Training Program to enhance both the volume and the quality of green bonds

IFC recognized that a significant impediment to increasing the supply of green bonds in emerging markets is a knowledge gap among issuers about specific requirements on green bond issuance. To address this knowledge gap, the GB-TAP developed Training Programs, together with the International Capital Markets Association (ICMA) and the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). These programs are offered in two formats to selected banks in emerging markets.
