Overview of the Green Finance Framework

Use of Proceeds from Green Finance

The net proceeds from green finance will be used for the acquisition of assets in the Eligible Green Projects as provided for in Eligible Green Projects below, refinancing of loans required for the acquisition of assets in the Eligible Green Projects, and for the redemption of the investment corporation bonds that have already been issued (including green bonds) for the acquisition of assets in the Eligible Green Projects.

Eligible Green Projects

Eligible Green Projects mean the projects involving assets that meet either of the following requirements.

a. Being a green building
A new, existing or refurbished building for which at least one of the following certifications has been obtained:

iii) BELS (in Japan): 5, 4 or 3
iv) LEED (in the United States): Platinum, Gold or Silver

Management of Proceeds

The upper limit of green finance (limit of the "Debts of Eligible Green Projects") shall be the amount calculated by multiplying the total acquisition cost of the Eligible Green Projects by the ratio of actual interest-bearing debt to total assets as of the end of the latest fiscal period that can be calculated on the payment date or loan date of each investment corporation bond, or as of the end of every February.
