Sustainable Finance

Meridian has a Green Finance Programme that covers both existing and future issuances of debt instruments.

The programme reflects our commitment to the leadership of and investment in renewable energy generation and will be used to finance or refinance sustainable projects and assets such as new and existing renewable energy assets. It enables us to connect our company strategy and vision to our financing requirements, and provides investors with opportunities to invest in a range of accredited debt instruments.

We have used sustainable finance instruments (directly or notionally) to refinance eligible wind and hydro projects, and assets that meet the following market standards:

  • The International Capital Market Association Green Bond Principles
  • The Climate Bonds Standard version 3.0
  • The Asia Pacific Loan Market Association Green Loan Principles.

In March 2023 we issued a $200 million Green Bond to support the financing/refinancing of eligible wind projects. This received an enthusiastic response from investors. A second Green Bond offer was issued in March 2024.
