Green Bond

The Green Financing Framework, developed in accordance with the 2018 Green Bond Principles published by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) and the 2020 Green Loan Principles published by the Loan Market Association (LMA), comprises the following sections:

  1. Use of proceeds
  2. Process for project evaluation and selection
  3. Management of proceeds
  4. Reporting

Acea has an ongoing commitment to sustainability issues and pursues best practices in the Green Finance market. For this reason, the Green Financing Framework could be revised to reflect possible changes in market practices or regulatory developments, as well as trends in the business plan.

The Eligible Green Projects offer significant environmental benefits and are divided into four areas, in keeping with the United Nations 2030 Agenda:

  1. Water resource management
  2. Energy efficiency
  3. Circular economy
  4. Green energy

In continuation of its commitment to sustainability, in January 2021 the Acea Group issued its first Green Bond, for the total amount of 900 million Euro.
