Must Read

Abu Dhabi, UAE- 04 July 2024- Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has signed a general agreement with the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) for a $3 billion (AED11 billion) green financing facility. It follows the signing of a Heads of Agreement (HOA) between ADNOC and JBIC in January this year and builds on their long-standing successful partnership.

Japanese commercial banks partially support the credit facility as part of JBIC’s Global action for Reconciling Economic growth and Environmental preservation (GREEN) lending program.

Khaled Al Zaabi, ADNOC Group Chief Financial Officer, said: “We are very pleased to once again partner with JBIC on ADNOC’s first green funding to accelerate our decarbonization and energy transition initiatives. Proceeds of this credit facility will enable ADNOC’s strategy to support a just, orderly and equitable global energy transition. The agreement also marks the next milestone in the long-standing strategic energy relationship between the UAE and Japan, and we look forward to further collaboration with JBIC as ADNOC delivers against its ambitious growth strategy.”
