GREEN BONDS FORAIRPORT DEVELOPMENT
According to Bloomberg News, Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico (GAP), the operators of the Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta airports, as well as 11 others in western Mexico, is preparing to issue its first green bond in October. GAP has set out a $US1.5 billion infrastructure spending program over the next five years, with more than half the total earmarked for the Guadalajara International airport. The financial news organization said GAP plans to invest heavily in renewable energy, as well as waste and water treatment plants, at several of its airports. Green bonds are a type of debt issued by public or private institutions to finance themselves and, unlike other credit instruments, they commit to the use of the funds obtained to an environmental project or one related to climate change.
BARS, NIGHT CLUBS TO REOPEN PARTIALLY
After a slight decrease in Covid transmission, and following consultations with his health cabinet, Jalisco Governor Enrique Alfaro has decided to partially lift the closure order on bars and night clubs in the state, which has been in effect throughout August. These establishments will now be permitted to reopen, but at only 25 percent of their full capacity.
