26th July 2019 by Emma Goring

Macquarie Group Limited (“Macquarie”) is pleased to present its first Green Finance Impact Report for the nine months to 31 March 2019.

Introduction

Macquarie Group Limited (“Macquarie”) is pleased to present its first Green Finance Impact Report for the nine months to 31 March 2019. This report relates to Macquarie’s GBP 2,100 million loan facility of which GBP 500 million constitutes green financing (“green tranches”).

It provides information on the environmental benefits (“green impact”) of the eligible projects which have been notionally allocated green tranche financing.

The approach presented in this report is consistent with Macquarie’s Green Finance Framework (“GFF”) which was developed in accordance with the APLMA Green Loan Principles.

Macquarie has utilised the expertise of the Green Investment Group (“GIG”) Green Investment Ratings team to demonstrate the green impact of its eligible projects. The full Impact Report is available in Appendix 1.

The GIG was formed in 2017, following Macquarie’s acquisition of the UK’s Green Investment Bank. The fully integrated business brought together the Green Investment Bank and Macquarie Capital’s existing renewable team to create a global leader in green investment, dedicated to supporting the growth of the global green economy. GIG is a specialist in green energy principal investment, project delivery and portfolio management and related services.
