INWIT publishes its first Sustainability-Linked Financing Framework

A fundamental step in integrating sustainability into the company’s corporate and financial strategy.

INWIT, Italy’s leading tower operator, has taken a significant step towards a more sustainable future by publishing its first sustainable finance framework, known as the Sustainability-Linked Financing Framework (SLFF). This document represents INWIT’s “manifesto” for financial operations linked to sustainability objectives.

A new chapter for sustainable finance

The SLFF establishes the full integration of sustainability into INWIT’s financing strategy, reflecting the growing importance of these issues not only for the company, but also for global financial markets. Thanks to this framework, INWIT strengthens its commitment to sustainability and proactive leadership in the sector.

An important action that adds a new piece to the path started by INWIT in the field of sustainable finance. Already in 2021 and 2022, the company had undertaken the first initiatives, linking the cost of bank financing to the achievement of specific sustainability indicators. This new step confirms and expands INWIT’s commitment to combining economic growth and environmental and social responsibility.

The INWIT’s goals

Within the Framework, INWIT has identified and inserted a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in line with its sustainability strategy, outlined in the Industrial Plan approved in 2024. These KPIs are designed to contribute in a concrete way to the development objectives sustainable development of the United Nations (UN SDGs) and concern two topics in particular: the reduction of CO2 emissions and gender equality in managerial roles.

INWIT is committed to reducing direct and indirect carbon dioxide emissions (scope 1, 2 and 3). This goal reflects a long-term strategy to reduce the company’s ecological footprint and significantly contribute to the fight against climate change.

Furthermore, it promotes gender equality in managerial roles, to ensure that women have equal opportunities to access leadership positions within the company, thus supporting an inclusive and equal corporate culture.

An instrument compliant with international principles

The Sustainability-Linked Financing Framework covers any type of financial instrument, the cost of which may vary in relation to the level of achievement of the specific sustainability objectives identified. It was prepared in accordance with the Sustainability-Linked Bond Principles 2023 (SLBP) and the Sustainability-Linked Loan Principles 2023 (SLLP), published by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) and the Loan Market Association (LMA).

The ESG rating agency Sustainalytics, an independent evaluation body, has released a Second Party Opinion which certifies that the KPIs selected within the Sustainability-linked Financing Framework are “core and material”, aligned with international standards and ambitious in their objectives.

The structuring of the Sustainability-Linked Financing Framework was supported by BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole Corporate Investment Bank and Mediobanca.

The publication of the Sustainability-Linked Financing Framework strengthens the company’s positioning in the market and also consolidates its role as a leader in the transition towards a more sustainable economy. INWIT thus demonstrates that integrating sustainability into corporate and financial strategy creates long-term value not only for shareholders, but for the entire community and the environment.
