Green Economy Transition

Green and Growth should go hand-in-hand

The EU4Business-EBRD Credit Line also promotes resource efficient investments, i.e. green investments

Green investments include:

    • Energy efficiency 
    • Renewable energy
    • Pollutants and waste minimization 
    • Water and raw material saving 
    • Soil erosion reduction

Examples of green investment projects:

    • Production and packaging machines replacing old inefficient machines
    • Systems for water and raw material re-utilization
    • Production lines representing Best Available Technologies
    • Replacement of old utilities (boilers, compressors, HVAC systems, cold rooms) with new efficient ones
    • Renewable energy investments such as Solar PV, wind, water, etc

If you would like to ensure that your investment is as green as possible, ask our technical team during your project application.

We track the GET results of each project and publish these on a regular basis.

Our aim:  70% of all investments under the EU4Business EBRD Credit Line have Green Economy Transition impact.

Green Economy Transition (GET) Results achieved by the EU4Bussiness-EBRD Credit Line in Georgia

  • Energy saving: 99.179 GJ
  • CO2 reduction: 21.114 tonnes
  • Water Savings: 221.147 m³

EBRD’s Green Economy Transition (GET) approach helps countries build green, low carbon and resilient economies.

The GET approach builds on a decade of successful climate and resource efficiency investments by the Bank. Investing companies have reaped the significant financial rewards of using energy, water and other resources more efficiently. Introducing modern, fuel-saving technology, recycling production materials and converting waste into sources of power and heating are just some of the ways businesses can free up capital for more profitable uses, such as innovation, research and development, market expansion.

GET investments constitute a valuable source of wealth and job creation at a time of continued economic difficulties.
