Furthering its commitment to its ESG strategy

Monterrey, N.L., Mexico. August 3, 2023 – Alpek, S.A.B. de C.V. (“Alpek” or the “Company”) announced today the successful refinancing of the outstanding balance from the 2023 bond due in August with bank debt that includes a US $200 million Sustainability-Linked Loan maturing in 2028. This represents Alpek’s first transaction with an ESG component, reiterating its commitment and progress toward its ESG strategy.

The loan incorporates a pricing mechanism that incentivizes improvement in two of the Company’s key ESG Targets:

  • Reduction in Carbon emissions for Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3
  • Reduction in its Incident Rate for its employees and contractors

The first strengthens Alpek’s alignment to its Science-Based Targets, simultaneously continuing its efforts to achieve net zero emissions. While the second contributes towards its Occupational Safety Target aiming to reach top-decile in the industry.

This transaction was structured by Bank of America, Export Development Canada, and HSBC. Bank of America jointly with HSBC acted as Sustainability Coordinators.
