Stage of the project cycle. Stages vary by development bank and can include: pending, approval, implementation, and closed or completed.
Bank Risk Rating
Environmental and social categorization assessed by the development bank as a measure of the planned project’s environmental and social impacts. A higher risk rating may require more due diligence to limit or avoid harm to people and the environment. For example, "A" or "B" are risk categories where "A" represents the highest amount of risk. Results will include projects that specifically recorded a rating, all other projects are marked ‘U’ for "Undisclosed."

Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.


As part of its Legal Transition Programme, the EBRD conducts corporate governance reviews ("CG Review") of its selected investee companies, which enables an assessment of the basic corporate governance structure of a potential client in a consistent and impartial manner. This enables Banking teams to identify possible improvements of the clients' corporate governance practices either as a source of transition impact or as a response to particular governance risks that have been identified.

CG Review

These improvements can then be defined as standalone measures or as more comprehensive Corporate Governance Action Plans ("CGAP") which the client is expected to implement during the life of EBRD investment. The CG review process is predominantly conducted in-house by the Legal Transition Team ("LTT"). In recent years, prompted by the climate change crisis and supported by the emergence of environmental, social and governance ("ESG") considerations in investments, investors and other stakeholders are putting ever-increasing pressure on companies to take into account the impact of their business operations on the environment, society, human rights aspects and the broader economy. The global regulatory landscape around sustainability is shifting rapidly, with new climate-related disclosure requirements being developed and implemented in the UK, EU, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Canada and the USA. In view of the above, EBRD now intends to enhance and adapt its existing Corporate Governance Toolkit ("CG Toolkit") to the new realities, which will entail digitalising the CG review process to the maximum possible extent and ensure that data collected are captured into a database. This will serve to effectively evaluate and enhance governance practices in a larger number of EBRD's investee companies in order to support its further activities in policy reform and draw lessons learned and policy directions for future activities.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent.

You can contact the PCM at: or you can submit a complaint online using an online form at:
