Albioma’s Sustainability-Linked Financing Framework has been tied to one Key Performance Indicator (KPI) and its associated Sustainability Performance Targets (SPTs).

KPI

  • SPT 1: RE in Albioma’s Energy Mix > 80% in 2023,

  • SPT 3: RE in Albioma’s Energy Mix between 95% and 100% by 2030.

V.E is of the opinion that Albioma’s Sustainability-Linked Financing Framework is aligned with the core components of the Sustainability-Linked Loan Principles (SLLP) and Sustainability-Linked Bond Principles (SLBP) 2020.

V.E has produced more than 260 second-party opinions on sustainable financing operations in Europe, Africa, Americas and Asia. We are a Climate Bonds Standard Approved Verifier.
