What We Do

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) invests in changing lives. Through our projects, business services and involvement in high-level policy reform, we're doing more than ever before across three continents.

Everything we do pursues the goal of advancing the transition to open, market economies, whilst fostering sustainable and inclusive growth.
