Sustainable Financing Options - No 1 in a Series of Briefs on Sustainable Financing

Businesses and organisations are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of operating in an environmentally and socially responsible way. Many have committed to soft law codices in which they undertake to achieve certain benchmarks such as CO2 reduction or increased use of recyclable materials. The need for sustainable financing products has emerged in the wake of the worldwide political pressure to make sustainability a priority on the corporate agenda. These products make it easy and cheaper for the borrower to finance investments in the transition to more ESG-friendly operations. The products are also required for investors to satisfy ESG asset allocations in their investment policies. To establish towards stakeholders that proceeds are used for sustainable projects, many issuers and lenders opt to follow a standard which imposes certain obligations on the issuer or borrower, primarily the obligation to use proceeds towards sustainable projects and report sustainability metrics on an on-going basis. The purpose of this briefing note is to introduce the different sustainable financing products and their respective standards. Currently, bonds are the most prevalent sustainable financing instrument, but sustainable loans are starting to get traction.
