Companies and investors are increasingly looking for opportunities to analyze and investigate the impact of their projects and investments. Sustainalytics’ Impact Report for Bonds & Loans is available for pre- and post-issuance assessments, providing issuers with a credible and independent analysis of the impacts both expected and achieved by financed projects. The report highlights the investor-relevant information related to your Framework in a concise and accessible manner.
Impact Quantification for Corporate Sustainability Strategy
The report highlights the Issuer’s sustainability performance by measuring the impact of the Use of Proceeds based on relevant KPIs, as stated in the Issuer’s original Framework and confirmed in the Second-Party Opinion.
Fulfil your Commitments as indicated in your Second-Party Opinion Framework
