In this episode of News from Poland—Business & Law, Stefan Feliniak describes how the ESG trend is affecting corporate lending.

ESG (environmental, social and governance) implements a concept of sustainable business that takes into account not only the economic interest, but also benefits for all stakeholders, local communities and the environment. In recent years, ESG has become one of the main business trends. This trend is also clearly visible on the debt-finance market. In today’s reality, sustainable finance is much more than just a buzz word. Statistics show rapid growth in the volume of ESG-labelled transactions.

This topic is discussed by Stefan Feliniak, attorney-at-law and senior associate in Wardyński & Partners’ Banking & Finance practice, who advises lenders and borrowers in acquisition finance transactions, project finance, and financial restructuring.

Konrad Grotowski, host of the programme, gives an update on the Polish economy.

News from Poland—Business & Law is a synthesis of important current events in the Polish economy and changes to Polish law, especially those that may concern management board members and affect the risk of serving on boards.

The programme is intended for foreign directors of Polish companies, foreign investors in Poland, and their foreign advisers.
