Indorama Ventures, a sustainable chemical production company, has secured a seven-year loan of $200m from the International Finance Corporation (IFC).  

The loan is set to bolster the company’s strategic sustainability programmes across India, Thailand, and Indonesia. 

It will also provide the company with the flexibility to convert into a sustainability-linked facility in the future based on agreed targets. 

Indorama Ventures plans to enhance its polyethylene terephthalate (PET) recycling footprint and efficiency, including upgrades to existing recycling facilities in Nakhon Pathom and Rayong in Thailand.  

Additionally, the loan will support the launch of an advanced plant in Karawang, Indonesia, and the development of new recycling plants in India.  

The financing will also reimburse expenses from 2023 and 2024 tied to sustainability projects.
