Commercial Green Borrower Questionnaire

This industry resource standardizes questions for commercial lenders to ask borrowers when applying for a commercial mortgage loan.  The questionnaire achieved "Candidate Recommendation" status in August of 2022, which means that it has been thoroughly reviewed by a wide range of organizations and industry participants and is available for use across the industry.

MISMO’s Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) community of practice (CoP) gained input from commercial lending professionals who collaborated to develop and standardize a set of questions that borrowers are asked to answer when applying for a commercial loan. These standardized questions are designed to assist lenders in gathering borrower information when originating, underwriting or servicing commercial loans in order to increase borrower participation in ESG.

While the initial focus of the questionnaire is on the green “E” components of borrower and property information, future versions could be expanded to include questions concerning other environmental, social or governance considerations.
