This finance includes ADB loan of $ 27.9 million, syndicated loan (Category B loan) of $ 148.8 million funded by the commercial banks with ADB as the Official Lender, and a loan of $ 9.3 million from Leading Asia Private Infrastructure Fund (LEAP).
 
This Category B loan is the first green loan in Asia and the Pacific to be certified by the Climate Bond Initiative, and one of the largest such Category B loans yet mobilized in Vietnam so far.
 
The participating commercial banks include Bangkok Bank, Kasikorn Bank, Kiatnakin Bank, China Industrial and Commercial Bank, and Standard Chartered Bank.
 
The Green loans are used to finance new or existing projects that bring the environmental or the climate benefits.
 
This project will support the rapid increase of solar power capacity in Vietnam, speed up low carbon growth targets, and at the same time, create momentum for greater fund from the commercial banks for the renewable energy sector.
 
This is the largest operating solar power project in Vietnam, one of the largest projects in Southeast Asia and will help reduce emissions by 123,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year.
