On 21 August 2023, EDF (BBB stable S&P / Baa1 stable Moody’s / BBB+ stable Fitch) successfully raised 325 million Swiss francs in 2 tranches of senior Green Bonds:
- CHF200 million bond, with a 4-year maturity and a 2.30% fixed coupon;
- CHF125 million bond, with a 8-year maturity and a 2.55% fixed coupon.
An amount equal to the net proceeds of the Green Bonds will be used to finance and/or refinance, in whole or in part, electricity distribution investments notably to adapt the grid to the needs of the energy transition as defined in EDF's Green Financing Framework published in July 2022.
This transaction enables EDF to further strengthen the structure of its balance sheet and refinance upcoming maturities, while diversifying its investor base.
