Green Loans for Corporates and Borrowers
Green Loan Verifications for Corporates and Borrowers
About Green Loans
More often, companies are looking to finance environmentally-focused corporate initiatives with green loans. At the same time, many banks are expanding their product offerings through green lending.
The Green Loan Principles, issued by the Loan Market Association, define a "Green Loan" as any type of loan instrument made available exclusively to finance or refinance, in whole or in part, new and/or existing eligible green projects.
Align your green project to the four components of the Green Loan Principles:
Use of Proceeds
Management of Proceeds
Process and Project Evaluation
Reporting on Proceeds
Typically, lenders recommend – and sometimes require – that borrowers get an external review of their Green Loan Framework from a recognized opinion provider to ensure alignment with the Green Loan Principles.
