Launch of the EBRDÕs 2014 annual Sustainability Report
The Sustainability Report demonstrates the environmental and social dimensions of sustainability at the EBRD and reports on the results and impact of our performance in 2014. The Report is available primarily as a dedicated microsite and is complemented by a summary print version in pdf format.
Discussion Panel Ð Inspiring Sustainability Leadership
A panel of recognised sustainability leaders discussed why being a sustainability leader is of such value and how the EBRD can inspire its companies to address sustainability issues in a more comprehensive and holistic manner. Just as importantly, it explored how some of these clients themselves can (or have) become leaders and role models for the business community within their countries and regions.
