Sustainable finance Sustainability-linked loans

Sustainability-linked loans

Following the success of the sustainability bonds and loans market which is geared towards financing specific projects, banks and borrowers are now showing growing interest in responsible borrowing based on the unspecified use of proceeds (mainly RCF*). These sustainability-linked loans (or ESG-linked loans) incentivise companies to improve their ESG performance by directly linking the financial terms of a loan to predetermined sustainability targets.

*RCF : Revolving Credit Facility
