Incorporating ESG into Supply Chain Finance
Sustainable finance: Helping corporates implement ESG programs
- Supply chain finance can be used to create a financial incentive for a supplier to commit to a sustainability policy.
- Supply chain finance is designed to reduce the cost of doing business, and large corporations with a lot of resources can assist smaller companies who would like to do something but face a challenge with the cost of implementing an environmental, social and governance (ESG) program.
- The adoption of ESG goals brings an increasing demand for accountability and transparency.
- Currently there aren’t any industry standards for an ESG compliant trade finance facility, as it will be up to lenders to come up with frameworks for what they consider acceptable for ESG linked lending.
