Road to a Green Bangladesh is an initiative to support Bangladesh’s commitment to climate action, SDG 13. Envisioning low carbon and inclusive transportation, Bangladesh is collaborating with UK PACT (Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions) to facilitate green finance and business-led sustainable transportation.
The initiative focuses on developing and piloting tests, undertaking techno-economic-commercial viability and providing support services, raising awareness, sensitizing and incentivizing gender and socially inclusive guidelines and engagement.
This project was led by Ricardo PLC with its consortium members LightCastle Partners, Infrastructure Development Company Limited (IDCOL), Policy Exchange Bangladesh, and Hivos Energia, and has been working to create awareness and promote EV adaptation in Bangladesh.
To gain deeper insights into the financial products available for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and electric vehicle (EV) financing in Bangladesh, a survey was conducted among financial institutions in November 2021 as part of the program.
