IFC, through its 30 by 30 Zero Program for the green transformation of banks, presents this webinar, sponsored by GB TAP and in collaboration with Environmental Finance.

Mexico is among the fifteen largest economies in the world and the second largest in Latin America. Like most of the region, Mexico is highly exposed to climate-related financial risks, one of the greatest challenges of our time, which nonetheless also offers great opportunities for investors.

The response to climate change requires large capital investments in key sectors such as renewable energy, sustainable construction, energy efficiency, infrastructure for water and waste management, sustainable agriculture, among others.

The good news is: Mexico’s financial system is getting on board with this trend. Investments in Sustainable Bonds grew by 172% between 2019 and 2021.

This robust growth offers international responsible investors great opportunities to capitalize on the market dynamics derived from the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Join us to learn why Mexico is a great investment destination for green capital markets. At this webinar we will discuss:

  • Demand potential and growth prospects for green bond issuance in Mexico
  • Which sectors offer the most investment potential
  • What has been the experience for issuers and investors
  • Opportunities for more local currency issuances and how this can expand the investor base
  • Current scenario and trends of the sustainable debt market in Mexico
  • Drivers, challenges and recommendations to better align financial flows to the development of climate agenda
