The GEFF programme operates through a network of more than 130 local financial institutions across 24 countries supported by almost EUR 4 billion of EBRD finance. This has enabled more than 120,000 clients to collectively avoid almost 7 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
Through GEFFs the EBRD provides credit lines to local financial institutions so that they can finance the green investments of a large number of eligible beneficiaries.
GEFF goes beyond providing simple lines of finance. An experienced EBRD team of bankers and technical programme managers ensures consistent quality and innovation in the GEFF product and service delivery. In addition, advisory services are available to help participating financial institutions and their clients enhance their market practices.
This helps GEFFs demonstrate the benefits of green economy investments and how to turn green projects into sound investments.
