Our green bonds
In 2018, we issued our first green bond. By issuing green bonds, we can support the long-term development of sustainable solutions through the financing of green projects. In our sustainability work, we focuses on six of the total 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, and our green bonds are in line with the goals.
Our Green Bond Framework is based on the Green Bond Principles from 2017 that were developed by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA). An independent evaluation of the framework has been carried out by CICERO (the Center for International Climate Research).
In June 2020 we reported on the environmental impact of our green bond by publishing a Green Bond Impact Report, including examples of the eligible green asset’s adherence to the relevant criteria in the framework.
