The green bond market passed a critical hurdle, as the inauguration of sovereign benchmark issuance brought a long-awaited boost to liquidity and the vital reference value of a core sovereign issuance programme. The panel will discuss how this landmark development may herald mainstreaming and underpin further growth of the green bond market  - after more than doubling in size last year. The panel will also consider the relevance in tackling key environmental challenges, and market governance, including the central role of the Green Bond Principles and striking a balance between rules and incentives.

Evening Receptions

The Philharmonie Luxembourg will host the welcome reception on the evening of Wednesday, 3 May 2017.

The Philharmonie has succeeded, in a very short space of time, in establishing itself as a much-loved venue for music-making, listening, encounters, and communication – both in Luxembourg and internationally and with both artists and listeners. This success owes much to its exceptional architecture and its impressive acoustics.

The gala reception will take place at the Abbaye de Neumünster, on the evening of Thursday, 4 May 2017.

The construction of the Abbaye de Neumünster started in 1606 after the Benedictine Abbey of Altmunster was seriously damaged. It comprises a church and four buildings grouped around an inner courtyard. After having been a military hospital until 1867, then a men's prison until 1980, it is now used for socio-cultural purposes.
