Huntsman Corporation HUN recently announced that its fully-owned subsidiary, Huntsman International LLC, entered into a new $1.2 billion senior unsecured, sustainability-linked revolving credit facility. This replaces the current $1.2 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility expiring in May, 2023.

The facility is slated to mature on May 20, 2027, and has better terms and lower fees. It also has provisions to extend the maturity by up to two more years and boost the facility size by $500 million. Its sustainability-linked attribute includes modifications to the commitment fee and borrowing rate related to the company's performance in intensity reductions for both greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption.

Huntsman stated that it takes pride in its role in creating a more sustainable future. The company noted that linking its revolving credit facility to sustainability objectives supports its commitment to providing innovative solutions for a low-carbon and more sustainable economy.

Shares of Huntsman have increased 24% in the past year compared with a 9.2% decline of the industry.
