CIFI Services S.A. acted as Mandate Lead Arranger jointly with Finenge Consultoria Ltda (part of CIFI Goup) and closed a long-term loan financing to a portfolio of 14 distributed solar energy projects in Brazil for AXS Energia, a subsidiary of Grupo Roca. The total financing of US$31.3 million was provided by a syndicate of lenders including CIFI Latam, S.A. CIFI Sustainable Debt Fund L.P., and two funds of the Triodos Asset Management group. With this investment, CIFI keeps cementing its commitment to advancing renewable energy and sustainable development in the region.

The collaborative effort with AXS, promotes economically viable projects and fosters a considerable positive impact for the environment and local communities, promoting a transparent and objective disclosure of the measurable positive impacts generated by the projects; all in alignment with the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals promoted by the United Nations.

The 14 solar distributed energy projects, with a total installed capacity of 30.13 MWac, represent another step towards a cleaner energy matrix in Brazil. CIFI’s internal projections suggest this initiative could mitigate over 40,000 tons of CO2e emissions annually, contributing to the global fight against climate change. Furthermore, the construction phase is expected to generate 650 indirect jobs, in addition to the 113 direct collaborators of AXS, therefore providing a considerable boost to the local economy and enhancing the quality of life in the involved communities.

More than 25,000 people are anticipated to benefit annually from the energy generated by these projects, thereby promoting access to clean and affordable energy sources for communities in Brazil. These steps emphasize CIFI’s commitment to the sustainable development of Latin America and the environmental and social well-being of the region.
