CONVERGENCE: Deciphering ESG in Affordable Multifamily Lending Webinar
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) multifamily lending programs continue to be a hot topic in the housing ecosystem. Despite pressure from regulators, stakeholders, and investors, MBA believes ESG is fundamentally a private-market construct. However, as the momentum for ESG lending grows, the unanswered questions on how to track and measure ESG increase. MBA continues to explore the environmental impact, social outcomes, and business practices of multifamily lending. Held on March 30, 2023, listen to the recording to hear from our industry experts.
Solving This Together
"Housing affordability is an issue facing millions of Americans, both those who rent and those who want to buy a home. There is no easy solution. The only way we are going to solve this is by getting lenders together with policymakers, consumer advocates, community leaders, and other stakeholders, and using our collective knowledge and experience to find the answers."
