The Sustainable Structured Finance team functions as a laboratory for new sustainable technologies and business models in need of financing within the EMEA region. The team is involved in the origination, structuring and execution of the project or structured finance transactions, which may be of a relatively smaller scale and are related to renewable energy, circular economy, bio-chemicals, waste and water or any other project supporting sustainable development.
A growing number of major companies have adopted sustainable business strategies to ensure their long-term profitability. As a result, new sectors are emerging and business models are developing that require creative financial solutions. Banks in general might hold back on new technologies as they are not familiar with them and therefore are not very willing to spend time on getting these kinds of projects financed. At ING, we truly believe that companies with sustainability in their DNA will be the winners of tomorrow’s economy, and therefore, we are very willing to create the most suitable Sustainable Structured Finance solution for our clients.
