Green Bonds

Railway Transport plays an important role in the achievement of Norway's climate- and environment goals. Compared to other transport methods, railway transport is more energy effective and is only responsible for a small part of the local air pollution.

Therefore, Norske tog plays a key role in the work to make a more efficient and environmentally friendly transport system in Norway. Norske tog's goal is to make passenger train travel in Norway more attractive and by doing so also contributing to "the Green Shift". The company has established a framework for issuing green bonds in order to contribute to further investments in rolling stock and
upgrades of existing trains.

Norske tog’s green framework is based on the 2018 Green Bond Principles issued by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA), and the company seeks to follow best practice in the market and update the framework as the principles evolve. Funds received from the issue of green bonds will be used to finance or refinance electric trainsets or upgrade existing electric trains.

CICERO, the Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research, has conducted an independent valuation of Norske tog’s green framework. CICERO uses the “shades of green” method as a basis for evaluating to what extent investment projects contribute to the low-emissions society and transparency surrounding climate risk, climate change adaptation and strategy. A green bond is rated on a scale from dark green to light green, and Norske tog’s framework has come out at the top of the scale, assessed as “dark green” by CICERO. This means that the company’s framework shows a good level of conformity to the ICMA’s principles for green bonds and loans, and that investments in electric trains will help to achieve the goals for a low-emissions society.
