The European Investment Bank (EIB) and the FS Group have finalized an agreement in Rome for a 500 million euro green bond. This bond will fund the acquisition of 102 new electric trains for regional services in the Italian regions of Campania and Lazio.

Trenitalia, a leading company within the FS Italiane Group, will receive these funds through an intercompany loan. This financial support from the EIB is aimed at purchasing electric trains equipped with ERTMS.

The introduction of these electric trains, expected to be operational by mid-2027, will enhance regional rail connections in Campania and Lazio, aligning with the respective service contracts.

This initiative is a part of the FS Group's strategy to promote sustainable mobility and economic development in Italy. The EIB's involvement in this green bond issue underlines its commitment to supporting projects that facilitate climate transition. The bond issue is part of FS's medium-long-term bond issuance program (EMTN Programme), which totals 12 billion euros and was established in 2013.
