Inaugural Green Bond Private Placements for a Belgian Issuer: 45 Mio EUR to finance Aquafin’s low-carbon, climate-resilient, and environmentally friendly investments
The Flemish water treatment company Aquafin mandated Belfius as joint lead manager and joint bookrunner (together with HSBC) to structure and place a Green Bond. Through this type of issuance, the company was able to diversify its funding sources and benefit from competitive market opportunities. Aquafin successfully launched a 45 Mio EUR Private Placement, being the very first Green Bond issue for a Belgian Issuer. As such, Aquafin attracted funding which will be dedicated to low-carbon, climate-resilient, and environmentally friendly investments.
