Norwegian aluminum producer Norsk Hydro ASA signed a US$1.6 billion revolving multicurrency credit facility with the margin linked to the company's emissions reduction target.
The facility, available for general corporate purposes, has a five-year tenor with two one-year extension options. It replaces the company's undrawn US$1.7 billion facility signed in 2013.
The margin under the new facility will be adjusted based on the company's progress on slashing emissions by 10% by the end of 2025, it said Dec. 12. Norsk Hydro aims to cut emissions by 30% by 2030.
