EIB project impact in Romania
The EIB is providing EUR 19.5 million to the municipality of Bucharest, for the second phase of its refurbishment programme for multi-family housing. The project is expected to result in around 50% savings in the heating energy consumption of 9 500 apartments. To date, the Bank has provided some EUR 400 million to finance the energy efficiency refurbishment of multi-apartment buildings in Bucharest.
SMEs require trustworthy financing partners for their survival and growth. Many small businesses start as an idea, with little else backing them. One of these companies is the carbon steel company SARA. The company began their partnership with our intermediary CEC Bank receiving loans amounting to EUR 9.9 million, making dreams become reality for the company.
