The identification and funding of sustainable projects is one of ICO's priority objectives in its financing activities.
We finance companies paying particular attention to renewable energy projects, sustainable infrastructures that include social networks and facilities, transport, logistics and ICT.
ICO is committed to the Equator Principles: an international management standard for evaluating environmental and social risks applying to the financing of industrial and infrastructure projects for all sectors and countries.
2018: 25% of the resources allocated by ICO through its international direct funding programmes were given to projects that met the Equator Principles guidelines.
2019: ICO has enhanced the financing of sustainable projects. In the first half of 2019, green or sustainable operations amounting to 800 million euros were formalised (including the loans granted to Iberdrola and Endesa).
