On 16 November 2021, the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) is hosting Sustainable Bonds: Bridging the Gap for Gender Equality, through which the ICMA, IFC, and UN Women will be publishing the “Bonds to Bridge the Gender Gap: A Practitioner’s Guide to Using Sustainable Debt for Gender Equality.”
This guide will serve to lay out the types of gender projects that can be financed by private and public sector issuers through sustainable bonds. It also provides examples of gender-based targets for issuers of sustainability-linked bonds.
This online event will convene speakers from various sectors and organisations to foster a greater understanding of the importance of social and sustainable capital in bringing about gender equality.
