Trafigura's low carbon aluminium financing
Natixis supports Trafigura in the design and structuring of a ‘low carbon aluminium’ financing platform of up to USD500 million. It has been designed to meet growing demand from downstream manufacturers for low carbon aluminium and to support upstream producers in accelerating their transition to low carbon technologies.
Orith Azoulay, Global Head of Green & Sustainable Finance, Corporate & Investment Banking at Natixis said: “The environmental transition of many industries will rely, in large part, on the creation of a low carbon aluminium value chain from extraction to final use. This financing marks the first milestone on this journey, notably by engaging key stakeholders on this value chain and by establishing the necessary technical and price signals. We are proud to have supported Trafigura in this financing, drawing on our historical expertise in commodity trade finance and leadership in sustainable finance. As demonstrated through our innovative Green Weighting Factor mechanism, Natixis has put the transition to a lower carbon economy at the heart of its business strategy and client strategic dialogue."
