We know that companies and their investors across the financial markets are increasingly focused on how environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors impact their businesses. For many investors and lenders, being aware of the ESG risks a company faces – and the way in which these risks are being addressed – is critical to understanding a company’s broader risk profile. Moreover, end investors are regularly requiring asset managers to illustrate how ESG factors inform their investment decisions. However, obtaining reliable ESG information about borrowers in the loan market has proven challenging. The development of this Questionnaire is a necessary first step in meeting that challenge. The Questionnaire is designed to be completed by the borrower during the due diligence phase of the loan origination process.
