ESG/Ethical Impact

Nelnet Renewable Energy achieved high ESG ratings by S&P Global on four of its 2021 co-investor solar tax equity funds. This rating system is designed to raise the bar on corporate standards for sustainability. Let’s take a closer look at the evaluations. S&P Global Green Transaction Evaluations “provide a point in time score on the relative environmental benefit generated by a green/resilience financing and an opinion on governance and reporting.” These ratings utilize the expertise of S&P’s 1,500 credit ratings analysts and sustainable finance analysts worldwide to assess an issuer’s sustainability strategy and financing frameworks. The four funds received environmental scores of 85, 82, 81, and 80; and all four received “Strong” governance and reporting opinions. The investment proceeds go toward funding solar photovoltaic (PV) projects, which support the displacement of electricity generated by fossil fuels. This facilitates community-wide decarbonization, and is a factor driving the high environmental scores of these investments. The renewable electricity generated by the solar PV projects will also have significant positive environmental impacts through avoided greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Green energy projects, including solar power, are considered long-term green solutions, and are therefore placed at the highest level of the S&P Global carbon hierarchy.
