On 20 January 2005, Dexia was named "Renewables Arranger of the Year 2004"
by the Infrastructure Journal at the magazine's annual dinner, a gathering of
nearly 300 specialists in project financing.
The award recognizes all the operations carried out by Dexia over the year
2004 concerning renewable energies. In particular among these are the arrangements
for financing several wind farms, including the Olivento project in Spain, the
Andretta project in Italy and the Brazos project in Texas, United States.
This is the second year that Dexia, the "sustainable development bank",
has been named "Renewables Arranger of the Year". It distinguishes
the work of multinational teams specializing in energy based in Brussels, Madrid,
New York, Paris, Rome and Sydney.
This exemplary distinction confirms Dexia's commitment to sustainable development.
It backs up the overall approach of the bank, which in 2002 adopted the "bank
for sustainable development" motto, and in 2003 signed the "Equator
Principles", a set of environmental principles concerning intervention
in the financing of projects based on the recommendations of the World Bank
and the International Financial Society (IFS).
Dexia's commitment is shown in real terms through "Dexia TV", a magazine
containing reports on sustainable development presented on its Internet site.
One of those reports in particular is dedicated to wind energy.
