The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development was founded in 1991 when Europe’s former communist countries were building new private sectors and democracy. Today we invest in changing lives across three continents.
Owned by 66 countries, the EU and the EIB, we provide project financing for banks, industries and businesses. We also work with publicly owned companies to support privatisation, restructure state-owned firms and improve municipal services.
Wherever we invest, we promote policies that boost the business climate.
We are also a world leader in the area of climate finance and the green economy.
