Labeled Bonds Standards
Directors and asset managers working with policy partners aim to increase standards in green, social, sustainable and sustainability-linked bonds. This group has developed enhanced standards for labeled bond issuance to diminish greenwashing and contribute to developments of the evolving labelled market while serving sustainability efforts. The Alliance will continue to identify challenges throughout the lifecycle of debt issuance and work to find ways to increase the quality of material E, S and G conditions in loan, bond and official sector structures.
White Paper on the Emerging Market Debt Crisis and G20 letter
As of June 28, the IMF had approved $244 million in debt relief and $65 billion in emergency financing to low- and middle-income countries, despite estimating that these countries will have additional financial needs of $2.5 trillion. The Alliance has published a White Paper to foster cooperation among policy makers, government officials, and investors, and to move the discussion beyond the short-term provision of liquidity and toward longer term measures that promote fiscal and debt transparency, debt oversight, and environmental sustainability
