Market and products aspects of ESG (supported by Luxembourg Stock Exchange LGX Academy)

Green, Social and Sustainability bonds (GSS bonds), as well as ESG funds, have emerged as important and innovative tools in the field of Sustainable Finance. Sovereigns, multinationals and corporates are increasingly considering GSS bonds in order to raise funds for their ESG investments. On the other side, asset managers are launching investment funds that incorporate ESG factors and risks, and even try to measure their environmental impact, to meet investors’ increasing demand. Different terminologies, standards and players exist in the market. 


This course will focus on giving clarity on the products currently available on the Sustainable Finance market with a specific focus on GSS Bonds and ESG funds, as flagship products. 

Participants will explore the current products available and in development on the market, and will benefit from concrete examples of their application. Participants will also learn about the importance of reporting and verification and the new market and regulatory developments in this field.
