The CEO of the Attijariwafa bank group, Mohamed El Kettani and the CEO of AMEE, Saïd Mouline have concluded this agreement.
The Attijariwafa bank group and the AMEE plan to boost green financing to meet national targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in terms of energy efficiency.
The Attijariwafa bank group and the Moroccan Agency for Energy Efficiency (AMEE) signed, on Friday in Casablanca, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which relates to the structuring of energy efficiency and green economy programs.
This collaboration takes place in a context marked by Morocco’s desire to accelerate its energy transition and by the accentuation of the effects of climate change. To meet these challenges, the two institutions plan to accelerate the dynamics of green financing in the field of energy efficiency, in particular within the framework of the accreditation of the Attijariwafa bank group to the United Nations Green Climate Fund (Green Climate Fund – GCF).
Through this collaboration, the Attijariwafa bank group and the AMEE plan to boost green financing to meet national targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in terms of energy efficiency.
As a reminder, the Attijariwafa bank group is a major player in the financing of energy transition and sustainable development with more than 1,900 MW of renewable energy projects financed in all the countries where the Group is present in Africa. Attijariwafa bank is the 1st commercial bank in Africa and the MENA region, as well as the 7th globally to have obtained accreditation from the United Nations Green Climate Fund in 2019, as a financial intermediary for the implementation of green finance in Africa.
