This is an emerging area of work, mostly concerned with the compliance risks associated with new and existing loan books. There are strong parallels with our work on investment and we support our members in understanding these risks and develop guidance for their debt portfolios.
Our programme of work includes:
- A Commercial Real Estate Lending Working Group that meets on a regular basis to share knowledge, practical experience of sustainability and indsutry updates.
- Driving the integration of sustainability in real estate finance. The CRE Lending Working Group collaboratively developed and published Beyond Risk Management: How sustainability is driving innovation in commercial real estate finance.
