Introducing a new webinar series: The role of green bonds in the energy transition

Green bonds can serve as a key instrument to finance the transition towards a low-carbon economy in the Energy Community Contracting Parties. The Energy Community Secretariat, in cooperation with the Hungarian National Bank and the Western Balkans Green Center, is launching a new webinar series to help raise awareness of green bonds and provide practical advice on how to mobilize this type of finance. With investors actively looking for sustainable, green investment opportunities, focus will be put on the tools needed to attract potential investors.  

In the course of six webinar-style lectures, the Secretariat will seek to improve Energy Community stakeholders’ knowledge about the steps to take to design green bonds on a national, municipal and company scale, while also focusing on the building sector and energy transition. The webinars aim to attract a wide range of stakeholders including government decision-makers, energy sector actors, academia as well as civil society and other interested stakeholders.
