Debt financing & Funding strategy
The main objective with Tele2's funding strategy is to secure appropriate funding and financial flexibility in a cost efficient way.
In implementing its funding strategy, Tele2 will seek to:
- Diversify funding sources
- Maintain a well-managed maturity profile
- Maintain a strong liquidity position
Tele2 has secured access to a wide range of funding sources in order to meet these requirements.
The chart includes bonds and committed credit facilities as per the latest quarterly report. Commercial papers and short term loans are not part of the maturity profile.
Green and Sustainability Linked Bonds
Tele2 AB has developed a Green and Sustainability Financing Framework under which Tele2 may issue Green- or Sustainability Linked Bonds. This combined framework will facilitate investments in green assets and sustainability performance aligned to Tele2’s vision of leading in sustainability. The Tele2 Framework is linked to its sustainability strategy and builds on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. A second-party opinion on Tele2s framework has been provided by Sustainalytics, a provider of environmental, social and governance (ESG) research and analysis.
