Project Description

The EBRD is considering providing a senior loan of USD 40 million equivalent to RESO-Leasing, a Russian leasing company. The funds will be used by RESO-Leasing for extending local currency lease products to medium-sized enterprises.

Transition Impact

The proposed debt financing will support Russia’s under-served SME sector. The Loan will be used by RESO-Leasing to acquire assets (trucks, trailers, light commercial vehicles, equipment and passenger cars) for on-leasing to SMEs operating across the European part of Russia, Ural and Siberia.

The Project will also diversify RESO-Leasing funding base and will ensure high standards of business conduct in a sector which is not regulated.

The Client

Environmental Impact

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.
