The EU Green Bond Stan­dard - An Ins­urance Per­spec­tive

As both the largest investors in and important issuers of bonds, insurance companies have a significant stake in making the EU Green Bond market succeed. We are excited to discuss the newly proposed EU Standard with our distinguished speakers from the European Commission, European Parliament and private sector at #GDVlive. 

A voluntary EU Green Bond Standard can play a key role in unlocking more sustainable financing for governments and companies. By growing the investable universe of green assets, it can stimulate the development of a deep and liquid green bond market inside the EU and help issuers to finance the transition towards a low carbon economy. As both the largest investors in and important issuers of bonds, insurance companies have a significant stake in making the EU Green Bond market succeed. 

We are excited to discuss with our distinguished panel how Green Bonds work in practice and how to achieve that the new EU standard is both credible and feasible in its implementation:

  • Christophe Hansen, Member of the European Parliament
  • Sven Gentner, European Commission, Head of Unit Asset Management
  • Andreas Sauerbrey, MunichRe, Head of M&A Transactions    

Moderation:  Mehreen Khan, Financial Times, EU Correspondent
