Elea Digital, a Brazilian Edge data centre ecosystem, has announced a R$ 200 million sustainability-linked bond to significantly reduce water usage in its operations, reaching ambitious targets that will place the company among the more efficient in the world.
Elea Digital will invest in more advanced and sustainable equipment that allows a more efficient use of water in the cooling process of its data centres while maintaining an efficient use of energy.
According to Alessandro Lombardi, Chairman of Elea Digital, the company, since its foundation, has been committed to positive socio-environmental actions.
“Today, Elea Digital takes the lead on the commitment with sustainability in the digital infrastructure sector in Brazil,” said Lombardi. “We trust that other players may be inspired by our pioneer path.”
The project had the support of three of the largest financial institutions in Brazil and showed adherence in the support of sustainability initiatives. The transaction can inspire other players to follow this sustainable direction.
“We are proud to be lead coordinator of the first sustainability-linked bond of Elea Digital which also is the first one in the data centre industry,” said Rafael Garcia, Head of Fixed Income at Bradesco BBI. “By committing to environmental and social targets, the company innovates and fosters sustainable practices in a relevant sector.”Click below to share this article
