Version four of the Equator principles will take effect on 1 October 2020, and it introduces three new requirements to the international environmental and social baseline for project finance:
- Human rights impact assessment
- Climate change risk assessment
- Obtaining the free, prior and informed consent of affected Indigenous People
Projects around the world need to ensure they’re compliant with the new changes and our Energy and Natural Resources (ENR), and Infrastructure, Construction and Transport (ICT) sector experts have reviewed the changes and outlined the impact they will have.
Please feel free to reach out to our sector ESG experts to learn more about the Equator Principle and wider Sustainability and ESG issues within the ENR and ICT sectors.
