The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) was founded in 1991 to create a new post-Cold

War era in central and eastern Europe, furthering progress towards ‘market-oriented economies and the promotion of

private and entrepreneurial initiative’. The EBRD seeks to develop a sound investment climate based on an effective

legal and regulatory framework which promotes corporate governance, including sound management practices, a firm

stance against corrupt practices, disclosure of information, and clear and consistent accounting and auditing practices.

All EBRD operations are guided by the need to promote environmentally sound and sustainable development as well as

appropriate procurement practices. www.ebrd.com
