Geneva, October 21, 2022 – Trafigura, a leader in the global commodities market, concluded an $800 million five-year loan underwritten and arranged by Societe Generale and syndicated with seven participating banks. The loan is guaranteed by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany acting through the German Export Credit Agency (ECA) Euler Hermes Aktiengesellschaft. The guarantee is provided under the German untied loan program to support Trafigura’s commitment to deliver, under a five-year supply agreement, up to 500,000 tonnes of non-ferrous metals to Germany .

The untied loan program is a tool to guarantee the long-term delivery of strategic raw materials in Germany. In return for an offer to hedge the financing, Trafigura entered into a new long-term agreement to supply strategic raw materials. The agreement included a review of Trafigura’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies and performance.

“Support from the untied loan program has enabled Trafigura to make a long-term commitment to supplying strategic raw materials to German industry,” said Kostas Bintas, co-head of metals and minerals at Trafigura.

Non-ferrous metals are used by European renewable energy, electronics and chemical industries, as well as suppliers to the construction and automotive industries.
