As the number of environmentally conscious businesses are growing, so is the interest for adding sustainable investments to the portfolio. Putting money in green bonds – earmarked loans to support environmentally-friendly and sustainable climate solutions – is a popular choice. And it’s the one that Stora Enso decided to go with in 2019 when a Green Bond programme was initiated.
Pasi Kyckling, SVP Group Treasurer at Stora Enso is very positive:
– Green bonds are a great match for our strategy at Stora Enso. Our green bond projects provide an opportunity for investors to invest in sustainable solutions that are controlled and managed by our company. The investments are used exclusively to finance specific green bond eligible activities.
– The general statistics for the green bond market signal that the market is growing significantly! There is a huge appetite for the sustainability market worldwide.
