22 October 2015 – The banks of the Banking Environment Initiative (BEI), together with the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) and Clarmondial, convened a roundtable to discuss the Climate Bonds Standard for Investments in Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU). The event was hosted in London by Northern Trust Asset Management.

The BEI has partnered with the CBI to accelerate the emergence of consensus on such standards and therefore contribute to the stable growth of the green bonds market.

The invitation-only roundtable discussion, facilitated by the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, involved a select group of institutional investors, intermediaries and prospective issuers and discussed the draft eligibility criteria for AFOLU issuance. Attendees included representatives from BEI members BNP Paribas and BNY Mellon as well as Quilter Cheviot Investment Management, Wilmar and the World Bank.
