Description

The Program operates at two levels: Firm and Sector1) Firm

  1. IFC provides selected businesses with in-depth advisory support to help them identify and implement opportunities for better resource efficiency.

    Every project is different, but the core stages in the advisory process typically include:
    base service – an initial scoping visit
    an in-depth advisory engagement – usually involving a resource efficiency audit or feasibility study (jointly funded by the Program and client), often supported by an experienced external consultant
    development of recommendations, and their implementation – typically through Program staff and consultants working closely with the client, often with financial support from IFC or partnering banks

  2. Sector

    The Program is committed to instituting best practices in resource efficiency. To drive market change in key sectors we implement special sector studies.

    Our current and future sector-specific initiatives in Ukraine include:
    a benchmarking study (initiated 2011) on the nitrogen chemicals and fertilizers sector in Europe, and Central Asia including Russia and Ukraine (Link to web-page)
    collection of Industrial water business cases – proven, financially viable best practices adopted by companies in the region (UMKA case)
    mapping the industrial and residential solar heat (and cold) use and markets in the region includes identification of major suppliers of technologies and services with reference to existing installations and experience (report anticipated early autumn 2012)
