Transition Impact

The EBRD is considering a senior loan for up to EUR 80 million in two tranches to Banca Comerciala Romana (BCR) to be on-lent by BCR to SME and Medium Corporates in Romania. The proceeds of the credit line will be used by BCR to provide medium and long-term financing to private companies for production, investment, trade, services and working capital needs.

The Client

Transition impact potential derives from the funding support for SME and Medium Corporates lending which is currently limited in Romania. Availability of financing for short, medium and long-term SME and Medium Corporates lending will further build up on the successful implementation of the other credit lines granted by the EBRD to BCR in the past. Supporting the growth of BCR will also strengthen the banking sector under the current global crisis.

EBRD Finance

A senior loan for up to EUR 80 million extended by the Bank to BCR.

Project Cost

Up to EUR 80 million.

Environmental Impact

This proposed project has been classified FI. BCR will be required to continue to comply with the EBRD's Environmental and Social Procedures for Corporate Lending. This will include adherence to the EBRD's Environmental and Social Exclusion Lists and submission of annual environmental and social reports to the Bank.

Technical Cooperation

BCR benefited in the past years from technical assistance granted to implement SME facilities provided by the EU. BCR currently benefits of TC for two Energy Efficiency Facilities.

No TC is envisaged for the proposed transaction.

Text of the PIP

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)

If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).

IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.

Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
