California Society of Municipal Analysts
Date: December 1, 2022
Time: 10:45AM - 12:00PM (PST)
Location: Napa, CA
Poonam Patidar will join a panel discussing ESG municipal bonds. They will cover what Municipal Green and/or Sustainable Bonds are, the differences between the municipal and corporate markets, disclosure standards and what are the regulatory authorities doing to mitigate “greenwashing”. Against that backdrop, municipal investors have a unique opportunity to influence the development of the Municipal Green/ESG Bond market, and in particular, disclosure standards.
