Sustainability Improvement Loan: how it works
Sustainability Improvement Loans differ from ordinary green loans in the sense that they can be used for general corporate purposes rather than for a specific purpose. Sustainability Improvement Loans are linked to the borrower's sustainability performance measured against Environmental and/or Social and Governance criteria ("ESG").
The sustainability performance is thereby linked to the underlying margin of the loan, in relation to pre-agreed sustainability performance targets. Enhanced sustainability performance lowers the interest rate, thereby reducing financing costs; if the targets are not met, the interest rate may increase.
