Sustainable Guidelines

Sustainable Bond Issuance

  • VINTE has issued sustainable and/or SDGs bonds since 2018, which entails that the use of proceeds will be allocated to finance green and social (both at the same time) eligible projects, according to the Sustainable Bond Principles published by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) and the UNDP SDG Impact standards.

  • In Mexico, investors, pension funds, insurance companies and multilateral organizations signed an agreement to support green financing, in which they commit to promote investments in projects that contribute to solving climate change (Investor Statement May 2017).

By issuing a Sustainable, Green bond, additional responsibilities are assumed:

  1. Independent third-party opinion that provides assurance of compliance with the MX Green Bond Principles (Vinte has the support of Sustainalytics and the highest sustainable rating by HR Ratings).

  2. Annual monitoring and reporting on the use and allocation of resources.

Vinte's Sustainable Bond Reference Framework

  1. Use of Resources: to finance and refinance sustainable community development projects under eligibility criteria (in general, most of the projects Vinte has developed over the past 15 years meet these criteria).
  2. Project Selection and Evaluation Process: land bank acquisition analysis committee (CAART, by its acronym in Spanish).
  3. Resource Management: Temporary investments in securities rated “AAA” as the investment process takes place.
  4. Reporting: Annual Sustainability Report with investment status.
