We have co-authored an article with Norton Rose Fulbright LLP focussing on financing sustainability in shipping.
Shipping plays a critical role in facilitating efficient global trade and underpins the international economy. There are, however, a number of social and environmental issues which the industry will have to address. This article explores how the sustainability-linked loan product can be, and already is being, used in the context of shipping financing transactions to address these issues and align with the direction of regulatory changes designed to stimulate a more efficient industry.
Scott McMunn has been appointed CEO of the LMA. His experience has covered the breadth of the lending market acting as issuer, lender, and investor and Scott has a proven track record of success in the capital markets space, specifically across multiple sectors in the loan market. Talking of his new role, Scott said, "It’s a privilege to be appointed CEO of the LMA. The loan market is a critical part of the financial markets ecosystem and is evolving at pace introducing new borrowers, investors, and accessibility while also continuing to help the real economy. Leading this charge at this time of global change and transformation as the industry develops and expands is such an honour. I look forward to working with the existing talented team at the LMA and the members to deliver the Board’s and the industry’s ambitions.”
The LMA is delighted to have co-authored an article with Norton Rose Fulbright LLP focussing on financing a sustainable future for the aviation industry.
Aviation is essential for global mobility, but is a ‘hard-to-abate’ sector, meaning it is prohibitively costly or impossible to transition to net zero with currently available abatement technology. This article explores how the sustainability-linked loan product can be, and already is being, used in the context of aviation financing transactions to catalyse the transition to a more sustainable future.
