Elisa has established a Sustainability Finance Framework to support the company's sustainability goals. Elisa can issue bonds and other financial instruments to finance or refinance sustainable investments and projects in accordance with the Framework.

“Elisa's mission is a sustainable future through digitalisation. We are committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and sustainability is part of our strategy. The company’s financing also reflects our sustainability goals. With this Sustainability Finance Framework and the sustainability-linked revolving credit facility that we signed in September, we are accelerating sustainable growth”, says CFO Jari Kinnunen.

In addition to Elisa's climate goals, the Sustainability Finance Framework includes areas of digital and social responsibility.

The environmental section covers investments to improve energy efficiency in network and data centres, as well as projects that promote resource efficiency or reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Digital and social responsibility projects will build equal and secure communications and services that will contribute to an equal digital society.

Handelsbanken Capital Markets acted as an adviser on the establishment of the Sustainability Finance Framework, and Sustainalytics has provided a second-party opinion.

Elisa's Sustainability Finance Framework and the second-party opinion are available on Elisa's investor website at https://elisa.com/corporate/investors/elisa-as-an-investment/debt-financing/
