As a member of the steering committee, UKEF will play a leading role in ensuring that the standards are comprehensively applied across project and other financing. UKEF will also contribute to the future development of the Equator Principles.

Since their introduction in 2003, the standards have been adopted by 90 financial institutions in 37 countries, covering over 70% of international project finance in emerging markets. The Equator Principles Association has brought these financial institutions together with stakeholders including non-governmental organisations, business and industry to develop mutual environmental and social principles.

UKEF joins nine other financial organisations on the EP steering committee, which is currently chaired by Standard Bank Group.
