Sustainability Asia: Sustainability linked loans
Asia video series – episode 32
Global | Video | November 2021 | 09:09
We have launched a new video series – Sustainability Asia. Each week, David Milligan and Nick Merritt, partners in our Hong Kong and Singapore offices, speak to colleagues and clients from across the region about why sustainability matters, how it will shape our markets and what it means for business in Asia.
In this video, Rosamund Barker, Head of Legal at the Asia Pacific Loan Market Association (APLMA), talks to David about sustainability linked loans (SLLs). She covers how the SLL Principles came about, the need to balance tightening of the Principles against not leaving companies behind, and whether there is any prospect of standard APLMA drafting being developed for SLLs in future.
