External reviews and second party opinions

DNV GL provided an opinion on the Framework as a whole in January 2019 and the first public bond issued off the Framework in April 2019, both of which can be found on this page. The opinion confirms alignment of the Bond and Framework with the various debt market principles (i.e. the ICMA Green and Social Bond Principles).

We will also obtain 3rd Party Assurance for the allocation of proceeds off the Framework, which will be available alongside any allocation and subsequent impact reporting.
