Proceeds from the green tranche will support eligible green projects globally that provide clear green benefits under Macquarie’s Green Finance Framework.
The Facility will adopt the four pillars identified in the Green Loan Principles published in March 2018 by the Asia Pacific Loan Market Association (APLMA). Based on a similar framework to the Green Bond Principles, the pillars seek to establish best practice across use of proceeds; project evaluation and selection; management of proceeds; and reporting.
The Facility was arranged by Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) and Macquarie Capital Securities Japan Limited (Tokyo Branch) with the participation of four Japanese bank financiers.
