Our newly rebranded Sustainable Finance Solutions (SFS) team marks an innovative company development aligned with emerging market trends in the Green Finance realm. Our mandate is to provide assessments and analysis to financial institutions, corporates and other issuers, allowing investors and lenders to evaluate the sustainability performance of both issuers and issuances. Our services include green/social/sustainability bond second-party opinions, annual compliance reviews, ESG ratings, and lender frameworks, among other projects.

As the leading external reviewer of Sustainability Bond frameworks, our team has supported well over 200 innovative social and environmental issuances, resulting in meaningful sustainability impacts. In 2017, Sustainalytics was awarded “the most impressive second opinion provider” by Global Capital. See our Green & Social Bonds services for more information.
