Sustainability-linked Bond

Imerys (BBB-, stable outlook at Standard & Poors and Baa3, stable outlook at Moody’s) launched on 6 May 2021 a €300 million sustainability-linked bond with a coupon of 1% maturing in 2031. With the first bond of its kind, Imerys confirms it is fully committed to reducing carbon emissions and to achieving its broader sustainability ambition.

    The climate crisis poses an urgent and irreversible systemic threat to our planet. This calls for global action towards a low carbon economy in line with the internationally agreed acceptable limits of global warming, as set out in the Paris Agreement.

    Companies have a pivotal role to play in reducing emissions and developing low carbon solutions, particularly in the industrial minerals sector. At Imerys, we see the role of our industry as central in facing this challenge and we are committed to act by reducing emissions and developing low carbon solutions.

    We have set the target - validated by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) - to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 22.9% in 2025 and 36.0% in 2030 relative to revenue (tCO2/M€) from a 2018 base year in alignment with a 2°C trajectory. This includes Scope 1 emissions (direct emissions from sources owned or controlled by Imerys) and Scope 2 emissions (indirect emissions from the consumption of purchased energy in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol).
