The TLFF I transaction is included among the case studies in the Blended Finance Task Force’s Better Finance Better Food report, which was released this past week. The case study describes the Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility of which ADM Capital is a partner as well as TLFF I, a sustainability bond for Royal Lestari Utama. ADM Capital’s partners in TLFF are BNP Paribas, UN Environment and ICRAF.
