PRESS RELEASE        Paris, 28 February 2023 – 5.45 p.m.


Touax Containers committed to sustainable finance

TOUAX announces that all tranches of its July 2022 facilities agreement for its Containers business have been qualified as Sustainability-linked loan. TOUAX Group has entered into an ESG extra-financial notation process lead by EcoVadis. The assessment resulted in a 63 over 100 notation and a silver medal for TOUAX for its ESG performance, ranking then the Group amongst the EcoVadis top 15% of all companies evaluations and amongst the best 8.5% of its industry.

With this transaction the majority of the financing arrangements of the Group (65%) are designed for a better preservation of the environment and for a high standard of compliance with best social and governance practices.

The revolving facility of the contract was also increased by USD 15.0 million to finance new investment for TOUAX’s future growth, through the purchase of owned equipment for leasing.

We are proud of this sustained ESG approach within the Group, after performing a first carbon footprint in 2022 and implementing financings with environmental impacts in the Freight railcars division and for the parent-company: Green Loan in 2020, Sustainability-linked bond under Euro-PP format in 2022.” commented Raphaël and Fabrice Walewski, managing partners of TOUAX Group.

The transaction was advised by ING, sustainability advisor. Legal counsels were Stephenson Harwood for TOUAX and Watson Farley Williams for the banks.
