The ASF has established a working group with the primary goal of developing consistent approaches and strategies towards the implementation of ESG principles across the securitisation market in Australia and New Zealand.
The preliminary objectives of the group are to:
- Assist the securitisation industry in advancing its ESG considerations, with the goal of increasing Australian securitisation ESG labelled issuance and investment over time;
- Provide information and education to the industry on relevant ESG global developments;
- Assist the ASF in establishing set ESG protocols and considerations (i.e. criteria for members, suppliers, etc).
The ASF will announce its achievements and milestones on an ongoing basis.
