Over the past two years green and sustainable finance has exploded in popularity becoming a major source of funding to housing providers.

But what is ESG and why should you care about it?

This new virtual classroom seminar will cover a number of key issues including the types of green financing available and why the housing sector has so wholeheartedly embraced it.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • What is ESG?
  • Why are funders so invested in ESG?
  • How green and sustainable financing is a natural fit for the housing sector:
    • Building houses is terrible for the environment
    • Reduction of the biosphere is a huge threat to life
    • Housing providers have recognised a need to reduce whole carbon in buildings, improve biodiversity, future proof for climate change in terms of architecture & improve the energy efficiency of buildings
  • How certain housing providers like registered providers and care providers are ahead of the game
  • The types of green financing available:
    • Green loans
    • Green private placements
    • Green/social/sustainable bonds
    • Sustainable bond frameworks and 2nd party opinions
    • Sustainability linked loans
  • Data and the importance of setting your KPIs at the correct level - not focusing on the E and neglecting the S & the G
  • Reporting standards:
    • GRESB
    • Sustainability Reporting Standard for UK Social Housing
    • Equity Impact Reporting Project
  • Task Force on climate related financial disclosures
  • How the move towards ESG links in with the retrofit agenda and the challenges in financing the retro-fit blackhole for housing providers
  • Conclusion
