Allen & Overy has advised several financial institutions – Citigroup and Crédit Agricole CIB acting as Global Coordinators, as well as BBVA, BofA Securities, BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Crédit Agricole CIB, Goldman Sachs International, Intesa Sanpaolo (Divisione IMI CIB), Mediobanca, Santander, Société Générale and UniCredit acting as Joint Bookrunners – on a new green bond issued by A2A S.p.A. for a nominal value of EUR500million and 11 years’ maturity.

The green bond has a fixed annual coupon of 4.375% and was admitted to listing on the regulated market of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.

The net proceeds from the issuance will finance the so-called Eligible Green Projects: strategic projects in the fields of circular economy and energy transition, which mainly relate to renewable energy, transmission and distribution networks, energy efficiency, and pollution prevention and control, as defined in A2A’s Sustainable Finance Framework.
