Sustainability

Objective

The Sustainability subcommittee ensures that the ASF identifies and responds swiftly to the domestic and global developments in sustainability, so as to capture opportunities and ensure that the Australian securitisation market continues to attract domestic and global investors.

A key outcome is to maintain and develop a minimum best practice guide for the Australian securitisation issuers on sustainability that is aligned with global developments.

Responsibilities

  • Communicate the latest sustainability developments to ASF members, and the potential impact of the developments on the Australian and New Zealand securitisation industry
  • Maintain and develop best practice guidelines (documentation, data, investor presentation)
  • Ensure that the Australian and New Zealand securitisation industries are well positioned to attract investments from domestic and global ustainability-focussed investors
  • Actively champion the adoption of best practices within the industry
  • Consider the potential role for the ASF to play engaging in processes which will influence the Australian and New Zealand capital markets relating to sustainability, such as the development of Australia’s sustainable finance strategy
  • Aim to share any key trends with Australian regulators via the Regulatory & Prudential subcommittee
