NEFCO has today signed six new agreements aimed at financing energy efficiency measures in the cities of Dobropillya, Slovyansk, Vugledar, Kurakhove, Kreminna and Myrnograd in eastern Ukraine.
A newly-built green school was inaugurated today in the suburb of Antonivka in Kherson, Ukraine. The school, which relies on energy efficient design, thermal insulation and solar collectors, was built with the support of an earmarked financial contribution from the Finnish Government.
Nopef’s credit committee has approved financing totalling EUR 232,000 for seven new projects. If long-term operations are set-up in the project countries, total investments will exceed EUR 4,1 million. The feasibility studies concern investments in projects to be carried out in China, Vietnam, Myanmar, Ukraine and the US.
The second phase of a comprehensive wastewater treatment investment programme in Gatchina, Russia took a major leap forward today when a grant agreement worth EUR 500,000 was signed between the local waterworks Gatchina Vodokanal and the Northern Dimension Environmental Partnership (NDEP).
The Board of the EU’s Neighbourhood Investment Facility (NIF) has recognised NEFCO as an eligible financial institution. In practice, this means that NEFCO can now serve as an implementing agency of projects funded by the NIF.
A green transition is not only a necessity, it also generates growth – this was the conclusion of a Nordic report presented to the G20 on 6 September in Shanghai.
