Pages Final External Review Guidance Jan 25 24

The Green Loan Principles (GLP), Social Loan Principles (SLP), and Sustainability-Linked Loan Principles (SLLP) (collectively referred to as the “Principles”) recommend, or in certain circumstances require, the appointment of external review provider(s) to undertake external reviews in connection with green, social, or sustainability-linked loans.

This Guidance is intended to complement the Principles (and  the accompanying guidance documents) (the “Principles and Guidance Documents”).

This Guidance is also intended to sit alongside other existing voluntary guidance relating to professional and ethical standards for external reviewers, as well as to the organisation, content and disclosure of their reports.
