The EBRD’s green financing hit a record €5.4 billion, or 51 per cent, of total business volume of €10.4 billion in 2021.

“These excellent results underscore the Bank’s strong dedication to continuing to support its clients in the wake of the pandemic as well as its commitment to decarbonise economies and enable the transition to a more sustainable future, with a focus on involving the private sector and supporting reforms to tackle climate change,” said EBRD President Odile Renaud-Basso.

The 2021 green results, a significant increase on the 29 per cent share of total financing in 2020, fall under the EBRD’s Green Economy Transition (GET) approach.

They follow the Bank’s recent twin commitments to align all its investments with the goals of the Paris Agreement on limiting climate change by the end of this year, a decision taken by its Board of Governors at last July’s Annual Meeting, and to make a majority of its investments green by 2025.
