Green Economy Transition

The EBRD helps economies to achieve the emission reductions pledged at the 2015 United Nations climate conference. Under our Green Economy Transition (GET) approach, we promote investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy, as well as in water and materials efficiency and climate resilience. The Bank participated in discussions at the UN Climate Change Conference, Poland, and reported on the progress of its green financing and policy dialogue.

Potential transition impact6 of new project signings

1 The number of projects to which the EBRD made commitments in the year.

2 Annual Bank Investment (ABI) is the volume of commitments made by the Bank during the year. This includes: (i) new commitments (less any amount cancelled or syndicated within the year); (ii) restructured commitments; and (iii) amounts issued under the Trade Facilitation Programme (TFP) during the year and outstanding at year-end.

3 Annual mobilised investment is the volume of commitments from entities other than the Bank made available to the client due to the Bank’s direct involvement in mobilising external financing during the year.

4 Total project value is the total amount of finance provided to a project, including both EBRD and non-EBRD finance, and is reported in the year in which the project first signs. EBRD financing may be committed over more than one year, with Annual Bank Investment reflecting EBRD finance by year of commitment (see footnote 1). The amount of finance to be provided by non-EBRD parties is reported in the year the project first signs.

5 Realised profit before impairment is before unrealised fair value adjustments to share investments, provisions, loan write-offs, other unrealised amounts and transfers of net income.

6 The EBRD gives each project an Expected Transition Impact (ETI) rating. ETI is based on the underlying aims of the project, which are structured around the Bank’s six “transition qualities“, the local context, and compliance with strategic goals.
