We’ve recently been very vocal about why development finance lenders need to show more commitment towards Net Zero and sustainable house building. We recently wrote a high-profile piece in Mortgage Introducer explaining why and how specialist lenders such as Blend Network can play a key role in the transition to a greener economy.
In case you missed it, you can read it here and find some excerpts below.
“The next decade will be crucial for protecting the planet for future generations. Financial services, particularly specialist non-bank lenders, have a critical role to play by helping deploy the financing needed to power the changes required.”
“The sector as a whole needs to up its game to ensure it is not left behind. Lenders have a particularly acute responsibility to support sustainability by ensuring that they are able to magnify and amplify developer’s success and provide appropriate financial packages.”
“Incorporating ESG factors can lead to increased profitability through higher property values, attracting more/better tenants and improved returns on investment. […]. the time is ripe for lenders to chip in and support the road to net zero. It is no longer enough to talk the talk, we must walk the walk.”
