Neste (Helsinki, Finland) has signed a €500-million ($535 million) green term loan agreement. The proceeds of the loan will be used to finance eligible assets and projects in accordance with Neste’s green finance framework. The loan has a tenor of three years with two one-year extension options. Danske Bank A/S and OP Corporate Bank acted as coordinating mandated lead arrangers and bookrunners of the loan.

Neste established the green finance framework in 2021 to further integrate the company’s sustainability ambitions into its financing. Neste says that the framework is designed to support financing of investments into the development, operations, maintenance, and expansion of its “renewable and circular solutions to mitigate climate change globally by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”

Neste in April this year completed an agreement process with the European Commission related to a recent decision by the EU Innovation Fund to grant €88 million to Neste for a proposed clean hydrogen project at the company’s Porvoo oil refinery in Finland.
