[#news3] What are Green Bonds?
The objective is to spread knowledge about Finance for Good and one of the chosen paths was the launch of a web series with eight chapters. Developed by SITAWI, the videos are being released gradually. On March 26, it was the turn of "The Market of Green Bonds in Brazil," i.e., traditional fixed income bonds, "but with funds directed towards projects and assets that bring environmental benefits," according to Carla Schuchmann, a senior consultant from SITAWI. In 4 minutes, Justine Leigh-Bell, of the Climate Bonds Initiative, and Gustavo Pimentel, a director of SITAWI, explain the features, the advantages for investors and issuers, and the situation of the mechanism in the national scenario.

Zero Carbon Connection
The Zero Carbon Connection fair is coming! Organized by WWF-Brasil, CDP and O Mundo que Queremos, with the support of iCS, the event will take place on June 11-12, and aims to present climate solutions and encourage business in the low carbon economy. It will bring together a multiplicity of people interested in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. There will be three structural elements: business (transformation of the business models to reverse climate change); cities (partnerships and solutions to accelerate investment in the green infrastructure); and behavior (transformation of the mental models to sustainable production and consumption). Register and check out the program here!
"It's an unprecedented opportunity to bring together companies of all sizes that perceive advantages in working in favor of the climate. This creates a unique area for the exchange of experiences and to identify possibilities of synergy or joint ventures. In addition to being valuable for the participants, the Zero Carbon Connection fair sends a powerful message to the country, by showing how the reduction of the emissions that are responsible for climate change are good for the economy. You think about the future, but the results are already arriving today" - Alexandre Mansur, one of the organizers of the fair.
