Project Description

The Bank adopted the Green Economy Transition (GET) approach in 2015 and since then, Financial Institutions (FI) department has been financing a growing number of GET eligible transactions, such as GET eligible bonds, sub-debt bond, partially GET eligible standalone transactions or risk sharing facilities. These transactions may be utilised for fully or partially GET eligible investments in the commercial or residential building sector, renewable energy investments or technologies, measures and equipment from the pre-approved list (Technology Selector), amongst others. The proportion of these transactions within FIs portfolio is expected to further increase from 2019 onwards. 

To support the origination and implementation of GET eligible FI operations in any EBRD Country of Operation (CoO), the Bank now seeks to engage a number of firms (the “Consultants”) for the Cross-regional Origination and Implementation Support Framework for FI intermediated (non-GEFF) GET investments (“the Assignment”).

The Assignment mainly benefits the EBRD in helping its clients identifying and prioritising GET eligible investment opportunities in FI capital market operations, including climate change mitigation, adaptation and environmental protection opportunities and are expected to further support the wider market in Countries of Operations.

The following activities are envisaged under the Assignment: 1. GET advisory services (project origination, training, monitoring and reporting); 2. Performing energy and resource efficiency audits for standalone FI GET operations; 3. Developing, updating or further populating country specific Technology Selector in selected markets; 4. Verifying GET portfolio of PFIs. Each sub-assignment will have a separate Terms of Reference and shall comprise one or more activities as defined above.

Any competitive selections for business opportunities relating to this project will be published on the EBRD's website: Consultancy Procurement Opportunities.

Access to Information Policy (AIP)

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.

Please note that after the appointment of the new mechanism Head in 2020, the revised Project Accountability Policy and Guidance will come into effect to guide case handling.
