Aquila for Industrial Parks
Are you an industrial park looking to finance your wastewater treatment projects through blue bonds? Learn how Aquila’s ESG data solution can help you
Blue bond is an innovative new financing instrument that rewards issuers with lower interest rates in exchange for the protection of critical clean water resources or marine and ocean-based projects with positive environmental and social benefits. Thus, blue bonds can be an important financing source to help industrial parks upgrade or expand their wastewater treatment facility to finance their projects. Yet, issuing a Blue bond requires the development of a Blue framework, which industrial parks may not be familiar with, and the regular disclosure of environmental impact.
Aquila helps IPs set baseline and sustainability performance targets (SPTs) that are relevant, ambitious yet feasibile, and in accordance with international standards.
Aquila automates the data collection process, meaning that IPs only need to install data loggers once to have constant access to real-time sustainability data of their projects on Aquila’s platform.
Aquila ensures that your data is always accurate and auditable, allowing you to effectively address lenders’ concerns over greenwashing and make sure you can access the capital needed.
