CEMEX took a big step toward green financing this week: Aligned with CEMEX’s Climate Action strategy and the company’s ultimate vision of a carbon-neutral economy, tranches under its new Facilities Agreement amounting to approximately US$3.2 billion will incorporate five sustainability-linked metrics, including reduction of net CO2 emissions per cementitious product and power consumption from green energy in cement, among other indicators. "We are pleased with this transaction, which allows us to improve our debt maturity profile and underscores CEMEX's commitment to sustainability as one of our key strategic pillars," said Maher Al-Haffar, CEMEX's Chief Financial Officer. "We are especially proud that this transaction represents one of the largest sustainability-linked loans in the world, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our bank syndicate for their continued support."

Morgan Stanley announced its new Morgan Stanley Experienced Professionals Program, designed to recruit Black professionals with two or more years of post-graduate or work experience for full-time positions. Uniquely geared for those without any background in finance, the training will involve one month of “financial 101 bootcamp,” then moves into two 10-week rotations within Fixed Income and Bank Resource Management. After that, participants will join a team in either department full-time. The program requires a two-year commitment, but, “the goal is to get Black professionals who are going to spend the rest of their careers at Morgan Stanley,” says Mariel Jenkins, a vice president in fixed income who helped launch the program.
