Rome, 13 July 2022
Today FS Italiane signed a new 17 years floating rate green bond for an amount of Eur 200 Million, under its EMTN Program. The note has been fully subscribed via a private placement issuance by the European Investment Bank (EIB).
The deal is the second tranche of an overall amount of Eur 550 Million of funds in favour of FS Italiane, approved by the EIB in 2021, for the financing of new high-speed trains purchases of Trenitalia. It follows the issue of Eur 350 Million, already subscribed in last December, which was the first corporate green bond ever purchased by the Bank.
The strategic partnership between the EIB and the FS Group witnesses the shared commitment to sustainable finance as a key driver to fight the climate change.
The proceeds will allow Trenitalia to purchase brand new ETR1000 high-speed trains to be deployed on the Italian and Spanish railway lines, facilitating the modernization of the existing fleet while increasing competitiveness in business outside Italy.
