The Bank has committed to fully align its activities with the goals of the Paris Agreement by the end of 2022. As such, each of the EBRD’s investments is screened extensively to ensure they are consistent with this goal. Our environmental (including climate) standards have not changed. We have had to find new ways to apply those standards, carry out due diligence in difficult situations and move fast. But we are determined that, when supporting Ukraine, we will not compromise on quality.
The launch of Chapter Zero in Ukraine is a good example of how, while assisting Ukrainians to meet their immediate needs, we are also helping them build the institutions and policies that will underpin a greener, better Ukraine in the future”, – the EBRD President Odile Renaud-Basso said in an interview to the “Interfax-Ukraine”.
