By converting the majority of its credits in Handelsbanken into sustainability-linked loans, Diös creates even stronger incentives for long-term sustainability work and strengthens the possibilities for lower interest rates. The loans are directly connected to Diös' goal of decreasing the CO2-emissions by half by 2030.
Diös has renegotiated loans with a total volume of SEK 1.7 billion to a term of four years. In addition to that, all of the company's long-term loans in Handelsbanken have been connected to sustainability-linked conditions.
-This type of financing solution further increases our incentives to develop the company. We are convinced that the movement we have started in above all our existing portfolio, is the best for both our business and the climate, says Johanna Olofsson, Head of Sustainability, Diös.
-We have a stable financial position and a strong cash flow. For us it is important that our sustainability work is connected with financing operations, says Rolf Larsson, CFO, Diös.
- We are very happy to act as advisors and sign Diös' first sustainability-linked loans, a collaboration that focuses on Diös' high ambitions in its sustainability work and gives Diös the incentive to continue contributing to the transition to a more sustainable and resilient society. The ambitious structure contains a double materiality, which is in line with the requirements of the EU's new directive for sustainability reporting (CSRD), says Sirak Mogues, Sustainable Finance, Handelsbanken Debt Capital Markets.
