Second Party Opinions

With the continuous growth of the Sustainable financing market, investors are requiring increased transparency from lenders and issuers. The ICMA (International Capital Markets Association) and the LMA (Loan Markets Association) recommend the publication by Corporates of a Sustainable Finance Framework and its review by an external expert via a Second Party Opinion (SPO).

Leveraging on its complementary expertise in Finance, CSR consulting for Corporates and SRI consulting for Investors, EthiFinance is a trusted partner for Issuers and their financial advisors. The Team has conducted several Second Party Opinions for medium-sized and large companies on different debt instruments (loans, bonds, securitization etc..). Committed to innovation, EthiFinance is also working with digital finance platforms as their SPO provider.

As part of its assessment of Green Projects, EthiFinance provides a detailed analysis of the projects’ eligibility and alignment to the EU Taxonomy.
