Business owners and managers from highly energy-dependent industries attended a joint business event at the Marriott Hotel in Yerevan on 15 August 2019.
The business event was aimed at promoting the use of clean energy through EE&RE technologies. GEFF experts provided more than 50 participants with detailed information about the benefits and advantages of green financing as well as the specifics of green investments. Furthermore, relevant projects and the various ways that these investments contribute to the overall competitiveness of businesses were discussed.
In addition to the presentations given by GEFF experts Mikhayil Gevorgyan and Vardan Khachatryan, the ACBA Leasing Director, Aghasi Gasparyan, and the Head of Client Acquisition, Vahagn Shmavonyan, introduced the financial institution’s approach to green financing and the implementation of competitive schemes to finance green projects.
As mentioned by the Deputy Project Manager of GEFF in Armenia, Andro Butkhuzi, “The level of engagement shown by businesses in implementing high performing technologies, in particular photovoltaics, and the results achieved in a short period of time, are already visible throughout Armenia. ACBA Leasing’s clients have not only made significant green investments resulting in financial savings, but have also contributed to the reduction of CO2 emissions, which in turn paves the way for the dissemination of renewable energy and energy efficiency practices.”
As confirmed by ACBA Leasing Director, Aghasi Gasparyan, “Adopting green technologies in Armenia is in the institution’s focus. In order to contribute to the adoption of such technologies and increase savings, targeted efforts are being carried out under the “Green Leasing” sub-brand by offering financial schemes accessible to a larger audience, in particular SMEs.”
