Capitalia rewards ESG compliant companies with better interest rates
Capitalia encourages companies to think about and implement good environmental, social and corporate governance (“ESG”) standards. That is why already since 2018 ESG factors have been important components of Capitalia’s scoring and pricing for financing small and medium businesses in the Baltic countries. As of the beginning of the year 2022 we have increased the weight of these factors and now companies with high marks for leading environmental, social and governance practices can get even cheaper access to business loans.
As the next step we plan to communicate our ESG scoring results also through our co-investment platform, allowing investors to identify the companies that are the most conscious of the environmental and social impacts.
