  • Modernising Brno’s

    wastewater services


    It’s 25 years since the fall of the Iron Curtain  

    and a decade since the Czech Republic - and  

    seven other countries from Central and 

    Eastern Europe - joined the EU.


    Here’s how we invested in a new treatment plant

    to provide better water services for Brno and 

    protect the Danube from pollution.

  • EBRD helps modernise 

    Baltic freight handling

    A €32.5 million loan from the EBRD to

    container terminal at Klaipeda port in Lithuania

    helped modernise its freight handling capacities and 

    upgrade the whole Baltics region as a transit hub.


    Klaipedos Smelte used the investment to buy several 

    container cranes, upgrade container handling equipment and extend the existing terminal area,

    important steps towards enhancing the region’s
