YIT extends the maturity of its credit facility by one year and links it to sustainability targets
YIT has agreed with OP Corporate Bank plc on a one-year extension of its EUR 50 million credit facility. The new maturity date for the EUR 50 million credit facility is in November 2023. The margin of the facility is impacted by, positively or negatively, the success in regard to two sustainability targets which are measured with the following indicators: lost time injury frequency rate, LTIF (including own personnel and partners), and emission intensity of the Group's own operations (CO2 emissions per EUR millions of revenue, tCO2e/revenue EUR million).
The link to sustainability targets is another step in the progress in reaching YIT’s ESG goals. The extension of the loan lengthens the maturity structure of the loans and supports YIT’s existing strong balance sheet position.
