Our aim is to be a pioneer in fossil-free food chain and to make a substantial contribution to national and global goals for climate mitigation.
Lantmännen aims to mobilize debt capital to promote the transition towards a low-carbon and environmentally sustainable society.
A Framework for a Greener Financing
In April 2021 Lantmännen launched a framework for green financing. The new framework provides a possibility for a broader green financing with the aim of a long-term sustainability focus and a clear vision in line with the Global targets for sustainable development by the UN.
The Lantmännen Green Bond Framework
The Lantmännen Green Bond Framework, aligned with the Green Bond Principles published in June 2018 by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA), defines the investments eligible for financing by green bonds issued by Lantmännen (“Green Bonds”). Lantmännen has worked together with Danske Bank to develop the Framework and CICERO Shades of Green has provided a second party opinion confirming the ICMA Green Bond Principle 2018 alignment, both documents are publicly available here at our website. Lantmännen will assign an independent verifier to provide an annual statement that an amount equal to the Green Bond net proceeds have been allocated to projects in line with the Framework.
