ESG principles are core lending criteria for Horizon West as it is in our investors’ best interests and our fiduciary responsibility to look after their long term investment needs. Our borrowers should be aware that our commitment to our investors is to meet the performance standards as articulated by the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank so as to ensure that we can meet the necessary criteria to create an environmentally friendly fund. These criteria are:

  • Does the applicant address the issue of clean water and sanitation?

  • Is this an industry, innovation or infrastructure project?

  • Does this project support the concept of creating a sustainable  community?

  • Does this promote responsible consumption and production?

  • And finally, does this support the Federal Government’s initiative on climate action?
