Hannon Armstrong (HASI) Welcomes Release of Green Bond Principles

ANNAPOLIS, Md., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital, Inc. ("Hannon Armstrong", "HASI" or the "Company;" NYSE: HASI), a leading provider of debt and equity for sustainable infrastructure projects, announced today that it will utilize the newly announced Green Bond Principles ("GBP") for its HASI Sustainable Yield Bonds.  "The guidance these principles provide to issuers and investors alike will be of great value," said Hannon Armstrong's President & CEO, Jeffrey Eckel.   "We have followed the four main principles of the GBP in our recent $100 million asset-backed Sustainable Yield Bond ("HASI SYB"), putting special emphasis on the 4th principle by a first-of-its-kind reporting on greenhouse gas ("GHG") reductions per bond.   Investors are increasingly interested in the environmental impact of their investments and we believe the GBP, combined with GHG metrics, represents a concrete step in that direction," said Eckel.

The GBP were announced with the support of Bank of America Corporation, Citigroup Inc., Credit Agricole CIB, JPMorgan Chase, BNP Paribas, Daiwa, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Mizuho, Morgan Stanley, Rabobank and SEB.    In December 2013, Hannon Armstrong announced the placement of its HASI SYB 2013-1, which securitized the cash flows generated by over 100 individual wind, solar and energy efficiency installations. In addition, investors in HASI SYBs benefit from a quantitative assessment of the GHG impact of their investment, with an estimated annual GHG reduction of 0.61 metric tons per $1,000 bond.

HASI has financed over $4 billion of sustainable infrastructure projects primarily in the asset classes identified in the GBP and presently manages approximately $1.9 billion of sustainable infrastructure investments. "The next step in the reporting and disclosure process for all new issuances should be to include a defined metric of environmental impact, similar to what is provided by HASI SYBs," continued Eckel.  "Increasing the level of transparency, disclosure and integrity of all bonds will give investors valuable information on GHG impact to ensure their investment goals are in line with their environmental goals."
