We are proud to have recently issued our first inaugural green bond raising R2.6bn across three, five and seven year maturities. The use of proceeds will be earmarked for solar and wind renewable energy projects.

In 2021 we enhanced our sustainable finance strategy to find solutions that help our clients make investments that have a positive impact. Our strategic direction builds on our successes while acknowledging areas for further impact. In our refreshed strategy, environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities were further elevated, along with our digital endeavours.

This sustainable finance issuance framework is a critical tool that sets guidelines and provides a platform for originating and raising more green, social and sustainable assets. On the basis of this framework, we recently issued our first inaugural green bond raising R2.6bn across three, five and seven year maturities. The use of proceeds will be earmarked for solar and wind renewable energy projects.

Our strategic theme of being an active force for good in everything we do encapsulates these ambitions. We look forward to in growing this new vision as we deliver true long-term value that allows us to be a force of unwavering positive impact.

The bravery to imagine. That’s Africanacity.
