Blue Bonds: Accelerating Issuance to Fund Sustainable Ocean Business


This online webinar will increase awareness around the opportunity and provide guidance on how to issue a blue bond to fund business opportunities and demonstrate positive impact on the ocean.

Blue bonds are an emerging class of sustainable bonds to connect capital with ocean business opportunities that can make a significant contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As the largest asset class in the global financial market, the bond market can play a significant role in realizing the SDGs. This is already happening through the rapidly expanding sustainable bond market. Yet ocean-related targets remain some of the most underfunded of the SDGs in spite of an increasing need for sustainable energy, food and transportation from the ocean. Blue Bonds can help issuers advance their funding needs while also illustrating their positive impact on the ocean.
