  • Funding date: July 23, 2021;
  • Maturity date: July 23, 2031;

This offering was extremely well received by the market with a strong level of oversubscription from institutional accounts located in North America, the UK and Europe.

The selected assets will be highlighted in the annual report, together with other sustainable financing actions taken by the group. Shurgard will publish annual updates in a Green Bond Report on its website ESG landing page.

Marc Oursin, Shurgard’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “With this first €300 million Green USPP, Shurgard further strengthens its balance sheet. We are pleased with the success of this transaction and we are in a very strong position to grow alongside the global economic recovery. “
