Green TFP

The Green Trade Facilitation Programme (Green TFP) stimulates the supply of high performance technologies and services into or across the economies where the EBRD invests.

It contributes to the Bank’s Green Economy Transition (GET) approach, which puts investments that bring environmental benefits at the heart of the EBRD’s mandate.

The EBRD has supported more than €1,800 million in green trade financing

Almost 900 Green TFP transactions have been financed in 22 economies where the EBRD invests
