During London International Shipping Week 2021 we will be hosting a panel discussion on sustainable finance in shipping. Our panel will compare the benefits of bilateral lending as an alternative source of sustainable finance with those of financing generated from capital markets (i.e. green bonds), and provide an update on the penetration of financings which generally have a sustainable criteria.
The panel, chaired by our Global Co-Head of Transport, Christine Ezcutari, will include:
- Joep Gorgels - Global Head Transportation & Logistics Clients, Managing Director, Corporate & Institutional Bank at ABN AMRO Bank
- Toufitri Akdime - Executive Director, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation
- Jacqueline Heng, Counsel in our Capital Markets team, who has extensive experience in capital markets, green bonds and financial products;
- Philip Roche, our Global Co-Head of Shipping, who has significant and broad experience in shipping regulations.
