Verizon Prices Third Green Bond Focused On Renewable Energy Buying
Verizon Communications in September settled its third green bond offering of $1 billion to become a leading corporate buyer of renewable energy in the U.S.
The net proceeds of its third green bond are expected to be allocated entirely toward renewable energy as the company enters into more long-term virtual power purchase agreements (VPPAs) which support the construction of solar and wind power facilities, according to the Basking Ridge, N.J.-based telecom giant.
Morgan Stanley is serving as one of four lead underwriters for Verizon’ most recent green bond. Verizon has also named three women- and minority-owned financial firms as lead underwriters: Loop Capital Markets, Ramirez & Co and Siebert Williams Shank.
