EIB and Aquafin embark on tenth financing agreement

The EIB meets around half of Aquafin’s total long-term financing requirements. The cooperation has already lasted for more than 20 years. In February 2017, the two parties signed the agreement for the arrangement of the first 100 million euros tranche under the tenth loan totalling 200 million euros.

During the negotiations about this tenth financing agreement, the emphasis was on the sustainability of the projects for which the finance was required. Aquafin had to demonstrate that at least a quarter of the investment value of these projects allowed for climate change. For example, this is the case for projects where we disconnect stormwater from the sewer system and for optimisation projects which offer better protection against the consequences of climate change. Thus, Aquafin managed to back up this finance application sufficiently.
