  • Framework provides guidelines to finance eligible Green Projects  through Green Loans/Bonds 
  • Successful conclusion of the first Green Transaction as a Green Loan of  400 Crores.

Birla Carbon, one of the leading  manufacturers and suppliers of high-quality carbon black solutions, has announced the  formal adoption of a Green Finance Framework. The framework outlines the criteria and  provides guidelines for Birla Carbon to finance eligible Green Projects through Green  Loans or Bonds. This move comes in continuation of the business’ decarbonization drive  to achieve Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050 and the introduction of ContinuaTM range  of Sustainable Carbonaceous Materials. 

In addition to the Green Finance Framework, Birla Carbon has also successfully  concluded the first Green Finance Transaction under this framework, in the form of a  Green Loan of US$ 50 million. This loan will refinance a part of the capital expenditure  which has been incurred towards installing state-of-the-art absorber technology to remove  various compounds from air emissions levels at the North Bend plant in Louisiana, USA. 

Sharing his thoughts on this announcement, Dr. Santrupt B. Misra, Group Director, Birla  Carbon, Director, Chemicals, and Director, Group HR, said, “As a global leader in the  carbon black industry, we have constantly been exploring opportunities to discover new  paths and drive new solutions in the effort of achieving our milestone of Net Zero carbon  emissions by 2050. The Green Finance Framework is an organic step in that direction. It  challenges us to deliver on our commitments and our vision.” He further added, ”With the launch of Continua™ SCM, we have carved a strong position for ourselves in the  sustainability and circularity domain within the carbon black industry. We now look  forward to exploring innovative solutions that support our goals and that of our customers  in the times to come.” 

Sharing his thoughts on the occasion, John Loudermilk, Chief Executive Officer, Birla  Carbon, said, “Achieving Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050 is at the core of our  business strategy at Birla Carbon. The state-of-the-art absorber technology initiative at  our Louisiana facility demonstrates our commitment towards using the best available  technologies for sustainable manufacturing of carbon black products.” He further added,  “In the years ahead, a significant commitment will be required for decarbonization efforts  of our process and the introduction of more Sustainable Carbonaceous Materials in the  market. Keeping this in mind, such a framework will greatly help finance such projects.” 

The Green Finance transaction was led by ANZ as the Lead Green Coordinator and DBS  and HSBC as Joint Green Coordinators.
