Financing Schemes

In Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka, small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) can make a significant contribution to improving the environmental and resource friendliness of production processes.

To this end, financing schemes are increasingly becoming available for SMEs dedicated to investments in resource efficiency measures. In respective country sections we are presenting a list of dedicated green or resource efficiency financing schemes. In addition, we are presenting several schemes that are particularly focused on SMEs and can also be used to finance resource efficiency measures. The lists of country schemes can be accessed here:
