Sustainability-linked debt issue
Vion Financial Services B.V. has successfully completed its first-ever sustainability-linked debt issue in the form of a Schuldschein, an unlisted bond loan. The € 75 million loan was issued with the support of ABN AMRO Bank, BayernLB and UniCredit. The pricing of the loan is linked to Vion’s performance on three strategic sustainability targets, i.e. animal welfare, product integrity and renewable energy. ‘We are delighted with this investor interest. The placement of this loan helps us to strengthen our financial basis for sustainable growth,’ said Vion Group Treasurer Mattijn Bak.
