How we work

A clearly defined set of standards governs all our work as we strive to develop a healthy investment climate, and promote environmentally, socially sound sustainable development.

... and why

The EBRD supports reforms that strengthen democracy. We believe a well-functioning market economy should be more than just a set of markets. The projects we finance are socially and environmentally sustainable and respect the rights of affected workers and communities.

We provide investments in projects which are not available from commercial sources of finance. We value gender equality as an integral part of our commitment to promoting sustainable and environmentally sound development.
