Sempra’s Sustainable Financing Framework SPO Provided by V.E

V.E, part of Moody’s ESG Solutions, has provided a Second Party Opinion (SPO) on Sempra’s Sustainable Financing Framework. The framework has been designed to finance or refinance new or existing eligible green or social activities and assets related to Climate Change Adaptation, Pollution Prevention and Control, Clean Energy Solutions, Clean Transportation, Green Buildings, Energy Efficiency, and Socio-Economic Advancement and Empowerment.

We assigned a Second Party Opinion (SPO) on the sustainability credentials and management of the Sustainable Financing Framework. V.E is of the opinion that this Framework is aligned with the Green Bond Principles (2021) and Social Bond Principles (2021). We express a robust assurance on the contribution of these bonds to sustainability.

Sempra is a holding company which invests in, develops and operates energy infrastructure, as well as provides electric and gas services in the United States, Mexico and in South America. In 2017, the Company agreed to buy Oncor Electric Delivery Co.

V.E has produced more than 380 second-party opinions on sustainable financing operations in Europe, Africa, Americas and Asia. We are a Climate Bonds Standard Approved Verifier.
