Sustainable Lending

Private finance has a critical role to play in catalysing the transition to a sustainable global economy.  At the LMA, we are dedicated to promoting growth and innovation in sustainable lending practices, and supporting the syndicated loan market as new sustainable finance regulation emerges. Our ongoing initiatives include:

  • documentation projects, including the release of model provisions for sustainability-linked loans, together with work on the preparation of an accompanying term sheet and a template mandate letter for sustainability coordinators;
  • supporting the development of market practice, including the publication of updated versions of the Green, Social and Sustainability-Linked Loan Principles and accompanying guidance documents;
  • responding to regulatory proposals in relation to sustainable finance; and
  • attending and hosting various sustainable finance events.
