“At the same time we are maintaining a strong balance sheet and strong market rating, allowing this funding to be secured at very attractive pricing.
“This green bond sends out a clear and unequivocal message – we support the transition to a low carbon energy system and wants to see a sustainable economy in the UK and Ireland in the long term.”
