The Equator Principles Association has published a finalised version of Equator Principles IV (EPIV) following consultation.
EPIV broadens the scope of the Equator Principles to cover a wider range of loans, including project refinancing and acquisition financing, as well as tightening standards in high-income OECD countries and addressing human rights and climate change issues in more detail. While the form of EPIV broadly follows the form of the draft published in June 2019, a few significant changes have been made and these are discussed in the briefing. We also include in the Appendix, a summary of major changes since Equator Principles III
