Fighting climate change, creating a new model of fair and sustainable development, to leave a greener and more competitive world to future generations.
A challenge that needs constant commitment and concrete actions. Such as new low-energy consuming and recyclable trains as well as investments in integrated infrastructure. A commitment that the FS Italiane Group now strengthens while integrating the Advisory Council of the Green Bond Principles (GBP), Social Bond Principles (SBP) and Sustainability-Linked Bond Principles (SLBP) of ICMA (International Capital Market), the most important international association of capital markets.
Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane - already a member of ICMA since March 2020 - was selected from among 83 candidates from all over the world, to be part of the Advisory Council 2020/2021.
Further evidence of the attention paid to FS regarding sustainability and sustainable finance - FS has so far issued two Green Bonds for a total value of 1.3 billion euros - as a tool to finance projects with positive impacts in terms of sustainability.
The Advisory Council represents 40 leading entities, selected from members and observers of the GBP, SBP and SLBP in various categories such as issuers, investors and underwriters. Its role is to advise the GBP Executive Committee SBP SLBP of ICMA, in order to increase its awareness of the market, broaden its reach and involve more observers and members of ICMA.
