New “green” financing alternative
By establishing an MTN (Medium Term Note) programme characterised by special terms and conditions governing sustainability and environmental issues, Fabege is launching a new “green” financing alternative in an amount of SEK 2,000m.On 13 May 2016 the first issue of SEK 600m under the Green MTN program was conducted. On May 23, the bond was listed on Nasdaq Stockholm Sustainable Bond List under the name FABE 101.
Demand is on the rise
Demand for green bonds for financing environmentally sound and sustainable assets is on the rise. By formulating corresponding terms and conditions and integrating them into its MTN programme, Fabege can offer investors an opportunity to participate in the financing of selected sustainable properties by purchasing the bonds issued by Fabege under the programme.
Special terms and conditions in respect of sustainability
Fabege, Handelsbanken and MSA have jointly devised a new funding product by establishing a “green” MTN programme, with special terms and conditions in respect of sustainability and the environment integrated into the MTN programme. Accordingly, all bonds issued under the programme will be green bonds.
Examined by Sustainalytics
To ensure that the programme satisfies the meticulous sustainability requirements that have been set, Sustainalytics, an independent research and analytical institute, has examined the green terms and conditions of the MTN programme.
