The company issued the green bonds to finance projects and activities to improve its environmental performance pursuant to the Green Bond Principles. These principles are voluntary guidelines that recommend transparency and disclosure and promote integrity in the development of the Green Bond market. They provide issuers guidance on the key components involved in launching a credible Green Bond and aid investors by ensuring availability of information necessary to evaluate the environmental impact of their investments.

Partners Alexei Bonamin and Kenneth Ferreira led the team at TozziniFreire advising the initial purchasers. White & Case advised the banks under US law.
