Major activities addressing a green economy: The project's main target was to support EBRD in introducing lease finance for sustainable equipment in energy inefficient economies of EBRD SEFF countries (Central and Eastern Europe and new EU members). Leasing through SEFF provides EBRD with an additional mechanism to deliver finance to private sector businesses wishing to adopt sustainable energy solutions. The project – implemented by Intec - tackled specific industry sectors and technologies that have proven to be popular under EBRD SEFF, especially in Romania, Russia and Ukraine, where the use of lease financing is already at a higher level.
