Proven track record of tapping sustainable financing

Following the launch of the Sembcorp Green Financing Framework and the Sembcorp Sustainable Financing Framework in 2021, we have successfully issued green and sustainability-linked bonds and loans to pursue our growth objectives. The alignment of our funding strategy with our transformation plan has enabled us to support climate change mitigation.

Capital recycling

Reinvesting the proceeds in our businesses allows us to enhance returns and create value for our shareholders. We continually evaluate our portfolio and explore the option of capital recycling to support our growth and optimise our portfolio. We are committed to ensuring that our capital recycling efforts are firmly aligned with our long-term financial goals and sustainability targets.

Disciplined capital management
We maintain a disciplined approach to capital management. Our key objectives are to maintain a diversified funding base and optimise the cost of funding, while working towards achieving prudent financial ratios. We achieve these by closely aligning the structure and maturity profile of our debt with the commercial profile of our core assets, while focusing on maintaining adequate liquidity for our businesses. By maintaining an optimal capital structure, we are making strides towards meeting our financial targets, which include achieving Net Debt/Adjusted EBITDA of 4.5x and Adjusted EBITDA/Interest of 3.7x by 2028.
Prudent debt management

We proactively manage our debt maturity profile as well as cost of debt, balancing it with a mix of floating and fixed rate debt to ensure competitiveness in a rising interest rate environment.
