ICMA members and interested market participants are invited to join us for a virtual event on social bonds and the implications for Asia Pacific.

In this virtual event, sustainable finance experts from ICMA and the market will discuss key features of social bonds and other virus response bonds, ongoing development of the Social Bond Principles, and the applicability of social bonds in addressing socioeconomic issues including those arising from Covid-19.
The discussion will be led by ICMA’s Simone Utermarck, Director, Sustainable Finance.
