E.ON SE will strive to cover more than half of its annual financing requirements with green bonds as it taps booming demand from investors for forms of debt that can help protect the environment.

The German utility on Monday unveiled its new framework for issuing green bonds, it said in a statement. The plan will allow investors to back sustainable projects and help make E.ON’s energy systems cleaner and smarter, the firm said.
