OTTAWA, Jan. 24 /CSRwire/ – Export Development Canada (EDC) today priced its first Green Bond in the principal amount of USD 300 million/. Thereby reflecting EDC’s commitment to the environmental aspects of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) principles.
Furthermore, The Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research (CICERO) is an independent research centre associated with the University of Oslo in Norway. It’s also endorsed EDC’s Green Bond Framework.
As written on their website:
Finally, EDC’s Green Bond program is an area where the interests of investors and EDC converge. In conclusion, it’s one that EDC is looking to develop and grow into a regular part of our funding program. That came from Ken Kember who Senior Vice-President, Finance, and Chief Financial Officer. Most Importantly, the Green Bond is a nice balance to EDC’s corporate focus on clean technology. So it seems an area that will feed new Green Bond issues in years to come.
