Channel Tunnel operator Getlink to issue new "green bonds"

·1 min read

PARIS, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Getlink, the company which runs the Channel Tunnel linking Britain to mainland Europe, said on Tuesday that it was planning to issue some new "green bonds", in a further sign of that bond market's growing importance.

Getlink said it would issue Senior Secured Notes due in 2025, to refinance its outstanding 550 million euros ($645 million) worth of senior secured “green” notes due to mature in 2023, with a 3.625% coupon.

Green bonds are used to finance clean energy and environmental projects such as wind farms and low-carbon transport.
