An unincorporated association is a voluntary association or union of a group of individuals who enter into an agreement as volunteers to form a body (organization) to accomplish a purpose. Members of the Association have a contractual rather than statutory relationship. The EPFIs have adopted Governance Rules for managing the Association.

An unincorporated association is not recognised at law as a legal body. An unincorporated association has no legal rights at law because it is not perceived as a separate entity, unlike a limited company. It has no existence or personality separate from its individual members.

Because it has no legal identity of its own and in legal terms is only a collection of individuals, an unincorporated association cannot:

  • Start a legal action;
  • Borrow money;
  • Enter into contracts in its own name;
  • Hold property.

The Association has appointed BNP Paribas as Corporate Trustee to act on behalf of the EPFIs with regards to managing the Association’s assets and liabilities. This includes owning the Association’s physical or intellectual property rights, being responsible for the Association bank account, tax liability and contracts with external parties.

NEW ADOPTERS

Taipei, 23 March 2015

Cathay United Bank (CUB) becomes the first Taiwanese bank to join the Equator Principles Association.

CUB is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cathay Financial Holding Company (Cathay FHC), the largest financial holding company in Taiwan. By adopting the Principles, CUB has declared its commitment to the assessment and management of social and environmental risks and impacts in its credit process.

“’Sustainability’ is a widely discussed topic among corporations and is also a commitment that a company makes in its pursuit of corporate social responsibility (CSR). The underlying connotation of corporate sustainability encourages corporations to embrace environmental, social, and governance issues as a strategic tool to modify corporate management system and operation model while seeking profits,” stated by Tsu-Pei Chen, Chairman of CUB.

Being an EP signatory not only reinforces CUB’s corporate commitment to sustainability and environmental protection, but also helps CUB integrate long established environmental and social risk evaluation system. In 2015, Taiwanese regulators started requiring financial institutions to publish their CSR report annually, however Cathay FHC has been publishing its non-financial information since it founded its CSR committee 4 years ago. Cathay FHC will continue to systematically integrate and develop its sustainable finance policy with its subsidiaries.

After CUB joins the EP Association, 80 Equator Principles Financial Institutions (EPFIs) will have officially adopted the EP, covering over 70 percent of international Project Finance debt in emerging markets. Read More

About The Equator Principles

The Equator Principles (EPs) is a risk management framework, adopted by financial institutions, for determining, assessing and managing environmental and social risk in projects and is primarily intended to provide a minimum standard for due diligence to support responsible risk decision-making.

The EP apply globally, to all industry sectors and to four financial products 1) Project Finance Advisory Services 2) Project Finance 3) Project-Related Corporate Loans and 4) Bridge Loans. The relevant thresholds and criteria for application is described in detail in the Scope section of the EP.

Currently 80 Equator Principles Financial Institutions (EPFIs) in 35 countries have officially adopted the EPs, covering over 70 percent of international Project Finance debt in emerging markets.

EPFIs commit to implementing the EP in their internal environmental and social policies, procedures and standards for financing projects and will not provide Project Finance or Project-Related Corporate Loans to projects where the client will not, or is unable to, comply with the EP.

While the EP are not intended to be applied retroactively, EPFIs apply them to the expansion or upgrade of an existing project where changes in scale or scope may create significant environmental and social risks and impacts, or significantly change the nature or degree of an existing impact.

The EPs have greatly increased the attention and focus on social/community standards and responsibility, including robust standards for indigenous peoples, labour standards, and consultation with locally affected communities within the Project Finance market. They have also promoted convergence around common environmental and social standards. Multilateral development banks, including the  European Bank for Reconstruction & Development , and export credit agencies through the OECD Common Approaches are increasingly drawing on the same standards as the EPs.

The EPs have also helped spur the development of other responsible environmental and social management practices in the financial sector and banking industry (for example,  Carbon Principles in the US,  Climate Principles worldwide) and have provided a platform for engagement with a broad range of interested stakeholders, including non-governmental organisations (NGOs), clients and industry bodies.
