Elea Digital Data Centers has announced a significant new issuance of debentures, valued at R$570 million (USD $117 million), dedicated to expanding its data center infrastructure across Brazil. Coordinated with support from Brazilian financial giants Bradesco BBI, UBS/BB, BTG Pactual, and Banco ABC, this issuance marks an instrumental step in Elea Digital’s commitment to sustainable growth and responsible corporate practices. As the largest platform with the most operational data centers across Brazil, Elea Digital plans to use the proceeds from this issuance to expand organically and align its infrastructure with international sustainability standards.
These debentures are distinguished as sustainability-linked bonds, reflecting Elea Digital’s dedication to key environmental and social goals. The company pledges to maintain high energy efficiency, substantially reduce water consumption, and achieve a groundbreaking target within the infrastructure sector — ensuring that over 40% of its managerial positions are held by women. This issuance represents Elea Digital’s fourth foray into the capital market, with the company having raised over R$1.5 billion in the past three years. It is also its second issuance of debentures linked to sustainable goals, demonstrating a consistent and evolving commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles.
Alessandro Lombardi, President of Elea Digital Data Centers, emphasizes the importance of building a responsible infrastructure that aligns with a vision of a sustainable and digital future: “With this significant capital raised, we are not only investing in expanding our infrastructure but also in shaping a more sustainable future. We’re setting a new standard in the industry, demonstrating that financial success goes hand in hand with social responsibility and environmental stewardship.”
This initiative has garnered interest from major financial institutions and set a precedent for integrating sustainability goals into digital infrastructure development in the Latin American market.
