The EBRD at 30

The EBRD was created in April 1991 to 'foster the transition towards open market-oriented economies and to promote private and entrepreneurial initiative'.

Since then we have invested over €160 billion in more than 6,000 projects across three continents.

We are a climate finance leader and have also committed much of our activity over the last 18 months to countering the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Work with us

We offer a wide range of financial instruments and other services, including business advice for SMEs, as well as policy advice.
