About this grant

FERN’s work aims to integrate environmental and social considerations into the decisionmaking and operations of European export credit agencies. During the grant period, the grantee will focus its work on the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s review of its guidelines addressing export credit agencies’ environmental impacts. In addition, the grantee will monitor and keep European Union officials informed of key projects funded or being considered by European export credit agencies that are not consistent with European Union environmental, social, and human rights policies. As well, FERN will begin discussions amongst European organizations working on export credit agency reform to consider recent macroeconomic changes that impact international investment flows and the policies regulating those investments.
