innogy has placed the first German corporate Green Bond in benchmark size. innogy’s inaugural Green Bond is an interest-bearing security, whose issue proceeds are used to refinance sustainable projects.
The proceeds of innogy´s first Green Bond will be used to refinance four offshore projects in the UK and Germany and one onshore project in the Netherlands. These wind farms are under construction or already in operation. With a volume of € 850 million and a 10 year maturity, the senior bond was placed via innogy Finance B.V. and guaranteed by innogy SE. The transaction was met with strong interest from investors and was oversubscribed several times.
