The current green bond framework for Entra was established in September 2017 by the Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research Oslo (Cicero), an independent research centre linked to the University of Oslo in Norway, and was updated in April 2018 to also include BREEAM-In-Use. Cicero has given Entra's green bond framework its highest rating - Dark Shade of Green. This rating is according to Cicero given only to projects and solutions that already today realise the long term vision of a low-carbon and climate-resilient future. Typically, this will entail zero-emission solutions and governance structures that integrate environment concerns into all activities.
DNB, Nordea and SEB acted as Joint Lead Managers for the transaction.
