Second Party Opinion

Sustainable financial instruments are specifically designed to fund projects and activities that have positive environmental or social impacts, alongside generating financial returns for investors. They cover a wide range of instruments, such as green, social, sustainability, sustainability-linked bonds, loans, equity, and all the specific thematic instruments within those wider categories, such as blue, transition, KPI-linked, SDG-linked bonds and loans, green equity etc.

However, external review of sustainable finance instruments, which typically involves third-party assessments or certifications, are often required by investors, lenders and stock exchanges to verify the environmental or social claims associated with these products. External review plays a crucial role in promoting transparency, credibility, and accountability within the sustainable finance sector, thereby fostering trust and confidence among investors and stakeholders.
