On December 12, 2019, Norsk Hydro ASA signed a USD 1,600 million revolving multi-currency credit facility with the margin linked to Hydro’s greenhouse gas emission target. The facility, which is available for general corporate purposes, carries a five-year tenor with two one-year extension options and replaces Hydro’s undrawn USD 1,700 million revolving credit facility signed in 2013.

The margin under the facility will be adjusted based on Hydro’s progress to meet its target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10% by the end of 2025.

Hydro has set a new climate roadmap towards 2030 where 10% reduction in climate emissions by 2025 is an important milestone to achieve 30% reduction by 2030.

“This is a confirmation of the strong relationship between Hydro and our core banks, and the process and terms concluded, reflect trust built over many years. This is a good example of the close link between profitability and sustainability, and I am pleased that the bank syndicate are supporting our new climate roadmap to cut emissions by 30% by 2030," says Executive Vice President and CFO, Pål Kildemo.
