IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EQUATOR PRINCIPLES
DekaBank has implemented the EP on a top down concept:
1. The overall business strategy (Geschäftsstrategie),
2. Credit risk strategy (Kreditrisikostrategie), and
3. Credit Manual (Kredithandbuch).
On the project management level any and each project manager has to verify the EP requirements based on the individual Technical Advisor (“TA”) report. Classification, findings and risk mitigation has to be evaluated together with the Sustainability Department. A comment – as a must – has to be written in the first and second opinion of the credit approval and presented to the decision maker.
The process of EP evaluation:
Dekabank define’s the process and follow up for a project financing as Work in Progress (“WiP”) along the chain of sustainability added value.
Before the Due Diligence phase started the TA is mandated to analyse the project on behalf of the debt investors; this is established within DekaBank. The mandate covers the obligation to classify the project in EP categories and to evaluate mitigation measurement. A verification takes place from Dekabank’s Sustainability Department and furnished a final statement of the project classification.
