Clifford Chance has advised the arranging banks – Citi, Erste, HSBC, JP Morgan, and Societe Generale – on Romania's first issuance of green bonds, to the tune of EUR 2 billion, and simultaneous EUR 2 billion issuance of conventional bonds. Filip & Company, working with Linklaters, advised Romania's Ministry of Finance.

According to Clifford Chance, Romania launched its Green Bond Framework program with the first EUR 2 billion tranche of bonds due in 2036, while the conventional notes are due in 2031. "Romania's Green Bond Framework has been developed by the Ministry of Finance with technical assistance from the World Bank and external advice from investment banks Citibank and HSBC."

"Through this show, Romania strengthens its position in the global fight against climate change and supports projects with a positive impact on the environment," Filip & Company Partner Monica Statescu commented. "Green bonds represent not only a financial initiative but also a firm commitment to sustainability and social responsibility."

The Clifford Chance team included Bucharest-based Partner Madalina Rachieru-Postolache, Counsel Cosmin Anghel, and Associate Nicolae Grasu, with further team members in London and the US.

The Filip & Company team included Statescu and Partner Alexandru Birsan, Senior Associate Andreea Banica, and Associate Andrei Anghel.
