The Equator Principles website now has a “disclosure section” which provides information on how the EP signatories are progressing with their annual disclosure reports.
The progress made by the 56 EP signatories on the 13 December 2007 was as follows:
- 33 – Reported (including some in the 1st year grace period)
- 10 – In the 1st year grace period
- 9 – No information made available
- 4 – Will report soon
It is encouraging to note that EP signatories in their 1st year grace period are producing disclosure reports. A few of the signatories clearly need to get on and prepare their report in order to comply with the requirements of Principle 10 . This section provides a valuable addition to the EP website with useful links to the available disclosure reports.
