The bond is due on December 2026 and the notes are guaranteed by the company and qualify as "green bonds" pursuant to the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) Green Bond Principles.
Canadian Solar’s solar and battery portfolio stands at 4.6GW and two gigawatt-hour respectively.

Canadian Solar said it may raise more funds over the next twelve months to complete the note programme's total size of €100m depending on the “timing of its capital requirements and market conditions”.
