What we do in Municipal and Environmental Infrastructure

The EBRD helps improve municipal and environmental services in its countries of operations, in line with its mandate to promote environmentally sound projects.

The EBRD helps improve municipal and environmental services in its countries of operations, in line with its mandate to promote environmentally sound projects.

EBRD MEI sector covers direct revenue-earning services, such as water supply, waste-water collection and treatment, solid waste management, district heating, natural gas distribution and urban public transport. Infrastructure, such as urban roads, and environmental clean-up operations, which are not directly revenue-earning, are also included.  Generally, the provision, financing and management of these municipal and environmental services are the responsibility of local or regional governments. EBRD MEI sector also covers environmental services, such as industrial and hazardous waste management, that may be organised nationally or outside local government responsibility.

In the MEI sector, the Bank also supports private operators under PPP-type arrangements, through equity and/or debt investments. At bidding stage, the Bank’ approach is to guarantee equality of access to all potential bidders and therefore to maintain the dialogue with bidders on a non exclusive basis. The Bank will only enter into exclusive financing negotiations post-award, provided the selected company or consortium meets the Bank’s requirements. This principle also applies when the Bank has already entered into an equity or debt framework operation with a particular market player, ensuring that the Bank remains available to other interested companies.
