SLP’s efforts to continually certify its properties according to environmental schemes and reduce its carbon footprint have resulted in the company’s share of so-called green loans increasing to about 40 percent of the existing loan portfolio. At mid-year, the green share of loans was about 20 percent. The financing agreements are based on the fact that parts of SLP’s property portfolio are environmentally certified or have low energy consumption. Through green loans, SLP lowers its margin by between 5-10 basis points per year compared to existing loans.
“We are pleased to have only secured bank financing and that all of the banks we work with have been able to provide us with good conditions based on our investments in green solutions. This is an important announcement for the company’s long-term financing and also a confirmation that we are taking the right steps. We have clear goals and procedures for our sustainability work, including that half of our lettable space will be environmentally certified by 2025,” says Peter Strand, CEO of SLP.
