Just confirmed: European Bank for Reconstruction and Development to discuss Equator Principles at The Sustainable Finance Summit November 29th in London

LONDON--Dr. Alistair Clark, Director of the Environment Department at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, will provide insight as the third panel member November 29th at Ethical Corporation's Sustainable Finance Summit, to discuss 'Equator principles as the de facto emerging platform for responsibility in primary markets.'

Since their formal inception in 2003, The Equator Principles have quickly become the emerging platform for sustainable finance in primary markets. Adopted by over 40 global financial institutions, the framework has grown to cover more than 80% of the project finance industry, helping to expand the assessment and management of social and environmental risk.

On the heels of the first revision of the Equator Principles in July 2006, it is time to look both beyond and to the future role for the guidelines.

Joining Dr. Clark at Ethical Corporation's Sustainable Finance Summit are Stuart Bell, Policy Director at Ergon Associates, and Leo Johnson, Co-Founder of Sustainable Finance. The three-member panel will lead Wednesday's 'Main Session' discussion, where they will explore the issue of expanding the Equator Principles in corporate debt syndication, debt and equity instruments, and venture capital. Also to be considered are implementation strategies, such as incorporating the environmental guidelines recently issued by European development banks, as well as the Equator Principles' impact on the work of advisors and consultants.
