Südzucker AG successfully issued the first issue under the new "Sustainability-Linked Financing Framework" on 24 October 2022 through its wholly-owned Dutch subsidiary Südzucker International Finance B.V., Oud-Beijerland. With the „sustainability-linked bond” format, Südzucker is committing to the sustainability target anchored in its 2026 Plus strategy.
