The Green for Growth Fund (GGF) is the first specialized fund to advance energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RE) in Southeast Europe, including Turkey, as well as in the nearby European Eastern Neighborhood region and in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Initiated by the European Investment Bank and KfW Development Bank, GGF is an innovative public-private partnership established to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. GGF provides refinancing to Financial Institutions to enhance their participation in the EE and RE sectors and also makes direct investments in Non-Financial Institutions with projects in these areas. The activities of GGF are supported by a Technical Assistance Facility.
