Sustainable Finance Framework

May 13, 2022 Published by

Newbridge is delighted to have advised Chelmer Housing Partnership (“CHP”) with the creation of its Sustainable Finance Framework.

The framework represents an important tool for CHP in supporting it to achieve ambitious environmental and social targets. Future financing will play a key role in meeting these targets and the framework facilitates the formal connection to debt being linked to ESG.

It received external accreditation from Sustainalytics, which gives lenders as well as investors confidence that the framework aligns with industry standards.

Rich Wilsher, Head of Corporate Finance “I’m thrilled to issue our first Sustainable Finance Framework. Supported by Newbridge, we’ve set ourselves some bold and transparent ESG objectives, and I’m looking forward to working with our lenders and investors to bring these to life.“

Newbridge has supported a number of clients in establishing their frameworks, a prerequisite to labelling a listed debt instrument as green, social or sustainable. It also can be used for Private Placements as well as Term Loans and Revolving Credit Facilities.
