Project Description

€ 50 million loan to Municipal Enterprise 'Kyivsky Metropolitan' (the "Company") to finance the procurement of 50 metro cars for the new metro line.

The Project is part of the Green Cities Framework 2. The facility is designed to serve as a sectorwide catalyst for addressing environmental challenges at the city level.

Project Objectives

The project addresses critical challenges (including, inter alia, congestion, air pollution, quality of public transport services, etc.) in Kyiv's urban transport development.

Transition Impact


The project is part of the Green City Framework 2 (GrCF2). The GrCF2 is a strategic and multiproject approach targeting environmental issues in selected large cities in our countries of operation.

The primary goal is to achieve significant environmental improvements and promote the green transition quality within the relevant cities. The GrCF2 also aims to build necessary capacity and facilitate better coordination and buy-in among various stakeholders within the relevant cities in order improve the governance, operational efficiency and financial sustainability of the targeted investments and initiatives. These objectives are supported by the development and implementation of a city-specific GCAP identifying and prioritising environmental challenges and ways to address them through targeted investments, services and policy instruments. The project will pursue a minimum of two TI objectives, being green and well governed, all of which is consistent with the GrCF transition impact.
