V.E, part of Moody’s ESG Solutions, has provided a Second Party Opinion (SPO) on Terna’s Green Bond Framework. The framework has been designed to finance projects related to connecting Italy’s power grid to renewable energy sources, increasing energy efficiency as well as quality of the grid by constructing new lines and substations. It was also considered to be aligned to the key recommendations of the EU Taxonomy Climate Delegated Act (June 2021).
We assigned a Second Party Opinion (SPO) on the sustainability credentials and management of Terna’s Green Bond Framework. V.E is of the opinion that this Framework is aligned with the four core components the Green Bond Principles 2018 as well as the EU Taxonomy Climate Delegated Act (June 2021).
We express an advanced assurance on the contribution of these bonds to sustainability. The expected impacts of all three projects are considered advanced as they increase the amount of renewable energy in the country’s energy mix as well as increase the quality of service to the consumers through improvement of its efficiency and quality.
