Bosses at Shanks have opened trading at the London Stock Exchange to mark their green bonds being the first retail offering to be listed on the exchange’s Green Market.
The ceremony was attended by Shanks chairman Adrian Auer, chief executive Peter Dilnot and other managers, employees and advisers.
Shanks launched green bonds at the end of May in Belgium and Luxembourg, with strict criteria that the funds be used for environmentally beneficial purposes.
Dilnot said: “The green bond market is incredibly important in promoting responsible investment in sustainable projects which will benefit the environment.
“Green bonds not only align with our vision to be the most respected waste-to-product company, but also support our commitment to sustainability and responsible green investment.”
Shanks has been listed on the London Stock Exchange since 1988.
