The Equator Principles Association has given its full support to the latest update of the Principles, released on 18 November 2019.
The Association gives its sincere thanks for all stakeholder and expert input during the scoping of the review, feedback on the draft and finalisation, an intensive two-year process with hundreds of contributors. A document detailing how the EP Association has responded to all recommendations is available here.
A press release on the event of the launch is available on the EP Association news page: https://equator-principles.com/category/ep-association-news/
The effective date for EP4 on all mandated transactions will be 1 July 2020. Any EPFI may apply EP4 on a voluntary basis before the effective date. Members and stakeholders will receive implementation guidance in Q2 2020 to assist with the transition.
