C40 invites you for a webinar on Mexico City’s experiences issuing Latin America’s first city Green Bond. Through this Green Bond, the city raised $1 billion pesos (US$50 million) for sustainable transport, energy efficiency and comprehensive water management initiatives and won a global award for Municipal Bond of the Year, recognising their success raising capital in spite of difficult financial market conditions.
 

Hear directly from the city’s Secretary of Finance, Edgar Amador, Secretary of Environment, Tanya Müller, and the bond’s underwriter, HSBC's Yumar Muñoz, on the lessons they learned issuing the city's first Green Bond.

Webinar topics

  • Mexico City’s rationale for issuing a Green Bond
  • The financial and environmental characteristics of the projects to be funded
  • Obtaining a second opinion on the green credentials
  • Green Bond underwriting and national financial market placement
  • The market response and future outlook
The webinar will involve a series of short presentations, followed by a moderated discussion with the opportunity for audience Q&A.
