The bond has a maturity of five years and was issued by Bolloré and purchased by the eeef. The eeef’s investment will be used to finance elec- tric cars and the infrastructure (i.e., charging sta- tions, rental places, etc.) required for Bolloré’s European electric car rental concessions, which the company won via public tenders. This transaction forms part of an urban trans- portation initiative for the cities of Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux. Project Highlights The project started in Paris, providing the city with environmentally friendly electric cars with the support of the city council. After the trial period and when a track record had been established, Bolloré targeted Lyon and Bordeaux for the initia- tive. The funding from the eeef’s bond has mainly been used in these regions. Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux are paving the way for other cities to follow their example of an environ- mentally friendly car-sharing cheme to combat climate change and contribute to the use of inno- vative forms of alternative technology. At the end of 2015, Bolloré had 3,944 cars and 6,493 charging stations installed across the pro- ject’s three locations. 2015 Activities Report: Investments 25
