Corporate Conversations: Getting the green light: how GCs are taking the green bond market by storm

Overview

In episode 6 of Corporate Conversations, The Legal 500’s head of research for the GC Powerlist, Joe Boswell, speaks with Salomon Vaie, senior legal director at Guatemala-based agricultural and industrial conglomerate CMI.

The wide-ranging interview focuses primarily on how Vaie and his legal team manage to issue an extraordinarily successful US$700m green bond in 2021, a first for both this century-old company and the region itself. Other topics covered are how GCs like him are leading finance projects in Central America, and what some of the main lessons he has learned over the course of his career have been.
