European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) joins SLoCaT

The EBRD is an international financial institution that supports projects in 29 countries from central Europe to central Asia. Investing primarily in private sector clients whose needs cannot be fully met by the market, the Bank is the largest investor in the region and it fosters transition towards open and democratic market economies. In all its operations it follow the highest standards of corporate governance and sustainable development.

In its recent activities the EBRD is paying special attention to a number of strategic initiatives and tackling energy efficiency as a key challenge of the transition region to adapt to climate change. Accordingly, the EBRD supports the development of efficient, reliable and secure transport systems in its countries of operations in all modes of transport, both in the interurban environment and the urban public transport.

In 2010 the Bank invested close to €1.8 billion in 30 transport infrastructure projects and its Transport Team actively continued to support the introduction of sustainable energy initiatives through, for example, financing the purchase of best available technologies, contributing to energy efficiency in the built environment and introducing energy efficiency best practice. Dedicated technical cooperation funding is also provided to many of the Bank’s transport clients to support them in taking the steps necessary to introduce mitigation and adaptation measures.
