EDF is a reference issuer in the Green Bond market, with the equivalent of €4.5bn issued through 5 tranches and 3 currencies
Since November 2013, EDF has issued the equivalent of around €4.5bn in Green Bonds to support its development in renewable energy sources.
Following the first two issuances that aimed to finance the construction of new wind and solar projects by EDF Energies Nouvelles, the Group extended its Green Bond Framework to financing of investments to renovate and modernise hydropower assets in mainland France. This new framework was first implemented for the October 2016 issuance.
Green Bonds are fully integrated to the Group’s financing policy, making EDF a frequent Green issuer participating in the development and liquidity of the Green Bond market.
