We conduct further due diligence and impose time-bound action plans on borrowers who are rated as carrying high or medium ESG risk. In addition, we may impose covenants in our credit facilities that require the borrowers to comply with ESG requirements. If the covenants are breached or our ESG expectations are not met, we will reassess the client relationships, including turning down transactions. As at 31 December 2018, 100% of the applicable borrowers had undergone ESG risk assessment".
