Towards sustainable Bank Financing

The banking sector has dealt with many transitions over the years. EU regulation on sustainable finance is pushing the sector into rethinking its core business – lending money to businesses.

In general, the term ESG finance covers all sustainable, including ‘green’ and ‘social’, finance. Among the most recognized types of ESG loans today you will find green loans and sustainability-linked loans.

Particularly booming in 2019 were the sustainability-linked loans as one of the key products, and new data tells us that this development continued into 2020. Such loans differ from green loans. Sustainability-linked loans can be applied for any sustainable purposes (green or not) - however, an in-built pricing mechanism means that the loan is cheaper if the borrower achieves certain sustainability performance targets.

This briefing note will take a closer look on what green- and sustainability-linked loans are and how banking institutions are applying these loans in their sustainable loan portfolios.
