Partnerships and events
We work with a number of organisations such as the Green Finance Institute and Climate Bonds Initiative to support, promote and increase sustainable finance.
Ashurst is an active voice in industry dialogue on the topic of green finance. We are a member of several ICMA Green Bond Principles Working Groups, the AFME Sustainable Finance and Green Finance Working Group and the APLMA Green and Sustainable Loan Committee. We work with the Green Finance Institute, launched by the City of London Corporation in partnership with the UK Government, the UK Green Building Council and also the Climate Bonds Initiative in Australia and the UK.
We regularly host and run events with our industry partners. Please contact us to find out more information.
