Environmental Guarantees can be granted as security for credits that are used for environmental protection investments, renewable energy projects or projects improving energy efficiency. Suitable uses for the guarantee are, for instance, investments improving water or air protection or the recycling of wastes, as well as renewable energy projects undertaken by companies that need financing for investments in wind power parks, biofuel facilities, thermal power plants utilising forest energy, or other similar applications. The Guarantee can however not be granted for financing that is used to manufacture the devices in aforementioned projects. For these purposes Finnvera can offer other financing products.
The guarantee can also be used for projects intended to improve energy efficiency and for the modifications, repairs or improvements required by the above-mentioned projects.
Environmental Guarantee is mainly targeted for large companies throughout Finland. The guarantee may also be granted for an investment that is carried out abroad but involves substantial improvements to the state of the Finnish environment.
