July 28, 2023 - Today the ESG IDP issued a press release announcing that an updated version of the ESG IDP Template is now available here. The ESG IDP Template is a reporting tool that represents a proportionate set of questions that are designed to solicit a global baseline of ESG information from private companies.
These updates have been made in response to valuable feedback from users and to enhance the functionality of the template for lenders. These updates include new fields as well as footnotes to support users’ understanding of how these data points may support compliance with the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). This has been included to support lenders within scope of the SFDR which are required to provide certain information to their investors. In support of the updated Template, the ESG IDP Secretariat offers a “how-to” video for completing the Template which is available here.
The ESG IDP Secretariat, of which the LSTA is a part, is delighted at the support shown by market participants. Already fund manager supporters collectively manage $6tn+ in assets and we know this number will continue to grow. If you are interested in registering support for the ESG IDP, please do so here.
