15 March 2021: Creation of a new green OAT with a 2044 maturity date

Following to the announcement of Bruno Le Maire, Minister of the Economy, Finance and Recovery, on the occasion of Climate Finance Day on 29 October and as mentioned in the 2021 State financing programme published in December 2020, Agence France Tresor announces the creation of a second green OAT, the OAT 25 June 2044. This new green bond, whose details will be announced later on, will be issued by syndication in the following days, depending on market conditions.

The joint lead managers will be BNP Paribas, Citi, Crédit Agricole CIB, HSBC and J.P. Morgan. All primary dealers (SVT) will be part of the syndicate.

This new bond will be reopened afterwards, according to market demand and in order to ensure its liquidity. In addition, AFT will continue to tap its first green bond, OAT 1.75% 25 June 2039, issued for the first time in January 2017 and whose outstading amount currently stands at €28.9 billion, in response to investor demand. All of these issues will be within the limit of the amount of Green Eligible Expenditures which reaches €15 billion for 2021 as specified on January 25 of this year.
