In June 2020, we published a briefing in which we examined the recent developments in ESG financing within the aviation sector, as well as the potential impact of Covid-19 as a catalyst for growth in this area. One of the key challenges identified was that ESG financings in the aviation sector would need to overcome accusations of "greenwashing" given that aviation has traditionally been viewed as a polluting industry.
Download our briefing as we consider the findings of the Steer Report and in particular its proposals for developing the technical screening criteria for aviation-related activities to be included in the EU Taxonomy Regulation.
