Seminar Invitation: Equator Principles III - The New Benchmark for Sustainable Finance in Emerging Markets

Equator Principles III (EP III) is set to be released in the first Quarter of 2013. EP III is an agreement amongst global financial institutions - including major financial institutions in Australia and Asia - to apply environmental and social standards to project financing. To RSVP CLICK HERE

Based on the practices of the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank, these principles set the industry gold standard for environmental and social sustainability, particularly in emerging markets like Indonesia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea and the Peoples' Republic of China.

Our seminar examines the new EP III and its implications for companies looking for financing and for their financiers. How can you comply more efficiently? What is expected and how do they affect you?

This seminar features a panel that includes a representative from the Export Finance and Insurance Corporation (EFIC) and the lead author of the first comprehensive book on the IFC Performance Standards. The session will provide an essential guide on these issues, with a practical orientation for bankers and those seeking access to capital.
