Finance is finally catching up with the environmental movement. Green bonds, which are debt raised by companies whose proceeds are used for environmentally beneficial purposes, are all the rage. More of them are being sold than ever before. But not all green products are equal, and the politics and regulation are complex. Why are investors buying in? What are the compliance challenges, and what are the incentives for businesses? Join host and Sidley partner, Sam Gandhi, as he speaks with two of the firm’s thought leaders on these subjects — Benedetta Pacifico and Matt Feehily.
Benedetta is counsel in Sidley’s London office and a member of the firm’s Capital Markets practice. She founded Sidley’s ESG-focused cross-practice sustainable finance and ESG working group in Europe. Matt is a senior managing associate in Sidley’s London office and a member of the firm’s Banking and Financial Services practice. He is also a member of Sidley’s sustainable finance and ESG working group.
