Why embed sustainability into business finance?
SMEs account for over 90% of all businesses worldwide, so it’s imperative that they take part in the transition to a greener, more sustainable future.
Sustainability-linked finance can be an important catalyst for action – SMEs will receive the financing they need to grow and a known financial incentive to become more sustainable.
But what are the gains for finance providers? Here are six benefits that finance providers could achieve by offering sustainability-linked finance to SMEs:
Attract SMEs who need financing to reach net zero
Surveys have shown that sustainability is a strategic priority for many SMEs and one in five say they will use external finance for net zero initiatives.
Attract capital that needs to deliver on ESG commitments
Banks and institutional investors will be able to deliver on their ESG commitments by funding sustainability-linked loans to SMEs.
Obtain the ESG data needed for regulatory reporting
Incentivise SMEs to measure and report the ESG data that will be needed by banks and investors for mandatory sustainability reporting.
Qualify for initiatives supporting net zero
Benefit from government policies that support financing of SMEs in the transition to a low carbon future.
Reduce financed emissions rather than offset
Incentivising SME’s to reduce their carbon emissions is better for the environment than relying on offsets, and it may be cheaper too.
Meet the demand for sustainable investments
Originate assets that are compliant with SFDR Article 9 and other sustainable investment classifications to attract new sustainability-focused investors.
