The sustainability-linked bond is EQT AB’s first bond and underscores its approach of having sustainability as an integral part of the business model of both the EQT AB Group and the EQT funds’ portfolio companies. The bond is the first sustainability-linked note to be issued by a private equity firm where the bond’s coupon rate is connected to predetermined sustainability performance targets. The bond enables EQT AB to connect sustainability with its funding cost and incentivize the achievement of its sustainability ambitions. The chosen targets for the sustainability-linked bond are related to setting science-based targets for greenhouse gas reductions and to EQT AB's commitment to gender diversity, both within the EQT AB Group and in the EQT funds’ portfolio company boards.

The sustainability-linked bond will further increase the EQT AB Group’s financial flexibility and be used for corporate purposes, supporting the EQT AB Group’s growth initiatives and long-term strategy.
