The Energy Community Secretariat, in cooperation with the Hungarian National Bank and with the support of 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.

Green bonds can serve as a key instrument to finance the transition towards a low-carbon economy in the Energy Community contracting parties, according to the secretariat.

In October 2021, the European Union raised EUR 12 billion in the world’s largest green bond issuance, while in September 2021 Serbia collected EUR 1 billion.

During webinars, the focus will be on the tools needed to attract potential investors having in mind that they are actively looking for sustainable, green investment opportunities.

Registration for the webinars is now open:

  • Introduction to green finance and green bonds – 24 March Register now
  • Government bonds issuance to support national green programmes – 7 April Register now
  • Green bonds issuance on national and municipal level to support just transition – 21 April Register now
  • Green bonds supporting investments in sustainable buildings – 5 May Register now
  • Green bonds supporting investments in the energy sector – 19 May Register now
  • Setting up an ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) strategy and including ESG-aspects in financial operations – 2 June Register now

In the course of the 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, the secretariat said .
