New investments

Arendals Fossekompani is looking for potential investments within green energy and technology that can support our long-term ambition to have a portfolio that will stand the test of generations, that contributes to a sustainable society, and that is future-oriented.
As part of our screening criteria, new investments should demonstrate a potential to contribute to, or to be transformed to contribute to, one of the six environmental objectives defined by the EU Taxonomy.

Green financing

Arendals Fossekompani's Green Bond Framework is aligned with the Green Bond Principles published by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA). It defines investments eligible for financing by green bonds issued by Arendals Fossekompani. In addition, this Green Bond Framework outlines the process used to identify, select and report on eligible projects.

Use of proceeds for the green bond is related to two categories: Renewable energy and eco-efficient and/or circular economy adapted products, production technologies and processes.
