Skanska launches its updated 2023 Green Bond Framework, which enables issuance of green bonds
Skanska established its first Green Bond Framework in 2014, with an update in 2018. With the 2023 update to its framework, Skanska includes criteria from the EU Taxonomy for sustainable activities and broadens the scope to include additional categories that are needed in Skanska’s journey towards its long-term climate targets.
The framework is aligned with the 2021 ICMA Green Bond Principles. S&P Global Ratings has provided a second opinion with Medium Green shading. Svenska Handelsbanken acted as advisor in updating the framework.
