Clifford Chance has advised a pool of c. 30 financial institutions, led by Natwest as agent, on the refinancing of Telefónica’s €5.5 billion syndicated revolving facility.
The syndicated financing is now linked to two key ESG performance indicators (social and environmental), with BNP Paribas acting as sustainability coordinator.
In a statement, a spokesperson said, “Consolidated as one of the leading global ESG telcos and a pioneer in sustainable financing, Telefónica has successfully completed the refinancing of its main syndicated facility under sustainable criteria. This transaction is a milestone towards Telefónica’s goal to exceed an aggregate of €10 billion in ESG financing, including new green and sustainable bonds and bank financing.”
