Danske Bank is proud to have acted as mandated lead arranger for Metsä Board Corporation’s EUR 200m sustainability-linked revolving credit facility (RCF), which supplements a EUR 150m loan. In the RCF, the margin of the loan is linked to sustainability criteria based on Metsä Board’s 2030 sustainability targets about reduction in specific water consumption and specific energy consumption. “Linking the pricing of our financing to sustainability criteria demonstrates the management’s strong commitment to reaching our recently announced, very ambitious 2030 sustainability targets,” says Jussi Noponen, CFO at Metsä Board, a leading producer of premium fibre paperboards.
