Latin America has assumed the limelight as a global protagonist in sustainable finance. The region lies at the heart of all discussions on sustainability since it is home to thirteen out of the 50 countries most affected by climate change, according to the OECD (2022).

Latin America is also poised to become a global provider of carbon credits, with the world’s largest rainforest and six of the world's 17 megadiverse countries (Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela). Recently, several Latin American countries have emerged as key innovators in sustainable finance through the development of Green, Social, Sustainability, and Sustainability-Linked Bonds (GSSSB). Optimising Latin America’s potential as a sustainable finance leader and innovator demands collaboration with London - as a global financial hub - alongside eclectic stakeholders across the investment chain including policy makers, international investors, bond issuers, and multilateral and development banks.

This conference, held by Canning House and the London Stock Exchange Group, explored Latin America’s crucial significance in the story of global sustainable finance, across two panels: on the region's green, social and sustainability bonds, and its carbon markets.
