ESG-Linked Loans Case Study, Lessons Learnt and Best Practices

April 11, 2022 EcoVadis EN

According to Yvonne Wiersma (borrower) - ESG linked-loans brought an increased focus on ESG across the organization. The ESG linked loan has brought more people in the organization onboard with sustainability. Everyone is pulling in the same direction to improve ESG performance. Previously there were people with an intrinsic desire to make progress on sustainability but also a group that did not share this motivation and the ESG loan system has made sustainability a key business initiative and created real movement in the organization.

Explore the rise in sustainability-linked loans from a lender and borrower perspective through the intervention of Roland Mees, Director Sustainable Finance, ING and Yvonne Wiersma, General Counsel, Kendrion N.V. A session moderated by Sophie Bertreau, VP New Solutions, EcoVadis and Alex Garkov, Sustainable Finance Specialist, EcoVadis.
