More about the Strategic Alliance on Green Bond Market Development (STA)
Alliance on Green Bond Market Development in G20 Emerging Economies is a
develoPPP.de partnership between SEB AB and GIZ where the latter has worked for
three years for the public benefit to support the development of robust and
sustainable green bond markets in emerging economies.
GIZ approach is
to raise awareness and build competence among the different market actors through
trainings, bilateral advisory support, as well as through knowledge products
such as research, publications, webinars and this e-learning.
Financial Services Group SEB AB collaborated with The
World Bank and a handful of Institutional Investors throughout 2007/2008, in
developing the World Banks first Green Bond, which is broadly seen as a
cornerstone for engaging Institutional Investors mainstream portfolios in
Climate Investments. As a top leading structural advisor and one of the leading
underwriters, SEB led a number of path-breaking Green Bond issuances, including the first municipal Green Bond, the first
non-supranational Green Bond and the first corporate Green Bond. Moreover, SEB
is one of the founding banks of the Green Bond Principles. It’s a member of The
Green and Social Bonds Executive Committee and previously led the Working Group
on External Reviews. Both SEB and SEBs clients have received a large number of
awards for their issuances from institutions such as Global Capital, CBI,
Environmental Finance and IFR.
GIZ is a German
public-benefit federal enterprise that works jointly with governments,
international organizations, businesses, civil society actors and research
institutions worldwide to foster international cooperation for sustainable
development. Through the develoPPP.de programme, we work on behalf of the
German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development with the
private sector supporting innovative projects in developing and emerging
economies for sustainable development.
More about the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE)
The Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) was launched in 2013 as a response to the call at Rio+20 to support those countries wishing to embark on greener and more inclusive growth trajectories.
PAGE seeks to put sustainability at the heart of economic policies and practices to advance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and supports nations and regions in reframing economic policies and practices around sustainability to foster economic growth, create income and jobs, reduce poverty and inequality, and strengthen the ecological foundations of their economies.
PAGE brings together five UN agencies – UN Environment, International Labour Organization, UN Development Programme, UN Industrial Development Organization, and UN Institute for Training and Research – whose mandates, expertises and networks combined can offer integrated and holistic support to countries on inclusive green economy, ensuring coherence and avoiding duplication.
