Funding a more sustainable built environment: the Loan Market Association in conversation with TFT


The Loan Market Association (LMA) is the voice of the EMEA syndicated loan market, whose members include lenders, law firms, borrowers and regulators, many of whom fund commercial property developments and navigating the challenges of funding a more sustainable built environment.

As part of the LMA’s mission to share best practice and expert insight, Hannah Vanstone met with Mat Lown, TFT’s Chief Knowledge & ESG Officer, to discuss our industry’s progress in delivering a more sustainable built environment, and the ways in which lenders and investors can help to support that work.

In a new article for the LMA, Mat discusses:

  • How sustainability considerations impact developer decision-making
  • Widening adoption of circular construction approaches
  • The challenges and opportunities for retrofit works
