Niam issues green bonds

Niam has financed newly purchased energy-friendly housing properties with green mortgage bonds from Nykredit.

The properties are located in Horsens and Randers. They are all newly built and meet the latest energy requirements.

The buildings have energy label A, and therefor meet the requirements in order to be financed with Nykredit’s green mortgage bonds. Green mortgage bonds were first offered in early May, and Niam is the first company to take advantage of the opportunity.

Green bonds are expected to provide a lower interest rate on the loans for energy-efficient buildings.

Michael Berthelsen, Country Manager, says, ”As a large property owner, Niam is focused on energy optimized, and environmental friendly properties, and when we at the same time achieve a lower interest environmental focus, it becomes a little extra incentive to think green.”
