The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) – supported by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the European Union (EU) – is providing a financial package of up to €25 million to Bank of Africa - BMCE Group to support Morocco’s green transition.

The financing, of which a total of €18.75 million will be provided by the EBRD and €6.25 million by the GCF, will be extended as subloans by Bank of Africa and its leasing subsidiary Maghrebail to local citizens, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and corporates for investment in climate change mitigation and adaptation technologies.

The new EBRD financing comes under the Green Economy Financing Facility (GEFF) in Morocco, which is supported by the GCF, and will build on the successful cooperation in implementing the Morocco Sustainable Energy Financing Facility (MorSEFF) programme. A comprehensive technical capacity package complemented by investment incentives, both funded by the EU, will support Bank of Africa - BMCE Group in the deployment of the programme.

Morocco is a founding member of the EBRD and became a country of operations in 2012. To date, the Bank has invested almost €3 billion in Morocco through 74 projects.
