Green Bond Framework
Balder has a framework for green bonds with the aim of financing projects that contribute to a reduced environmental impact.
The framework gives Balder the opportunity to issue green bonds, with the condition that the issue proceeds are only used for financing projects and assets covered by the green bond framework. This primarily concerns green and energy-efficient buildings, but also investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
Balder's green bond framework has been developed in line with the industry standard Green Bond Principles 2018. The framework has undergone an independent evaluation by Cicero Shades of Green, and has been awarded the rating Medium Green. Balder will annually publish a Green Bond Impact Report with an account of how the funds have been used.
