BT objective: reduce the carbon footprint

Banca Transilvania is the first bank in Romania that provided financing for energy efficiency in the residential sector in Romania,from EBRD funds, in 2017. BT took the first steps in this regard 10 years ago, by supporting the increase of the energy efficiency of the economic activities of SMEs, as well as of sustainable growth projects carried out by public institutions. In addition to financing from partnerships with the EBRD within the RoSEFFprogram, respectively with IFC and EEEF,Banca Transilvania Financial Group supports environmentally friendly projects, including from its own sources and has complex models for assessing environmental risk.

One of BT's strategic objectives is to reduce the carbon footprint generated by the portfolio financed by the bank and the other companies of the BT Financial Group.
