ESGiQ advisors craft bond frameworks in alignment with best practice ICMA (International Capital Markets Association) green bond principles (GBP) and social bond principles (SBP).
Benefits of green/social bond financing include significantly lower interest rates and having a tangible, auditable vehicle to communicate your sustainability efforts to investors.
Under ICMA best practices, there are four core components for alignment with Green Bond and Social Bond Principles:
- Use of Proceeds
- Process for Project Evaluation and Selection
- Management of Proceeds
