The Green Economy Financing Facilities (GEFFs) support businesses and home owners to invest in green technologies. Since the launch of this financing instrument, and with the support of donors, the EBRD has distributed over €5 billion via more than 170 participating financial institutions to support more than 218,000 green investments across 28 countries. Together with funding from our co-financing partners to date, the GEFFs avoid almost 9.5 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.
