«The Development Bank actively supports projects in the field of renewable energy sources, and strives to reduce the shortage of electricity in the market of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The Bank intends to comply with international standards of sustainable development, including ensuring that the activities of its borrowers comply with these principles. This underlines the Bank's readiness to assist in achieving global sustainable development goals and the transition to a low-carbon economy, as part of the implementation of the strategic goal of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060», said Deputy Chairman of the Board Botagoz Abisheva.

As part of the discussion, Botagoz Abisheva presented the plans of the DBK for the development of activities in the direction of renewable energy sources. In order to attract additional resources necessary for low-carbon development and achieving carbon neutrality, the Bank intends to expand the use of the mechanism of «green» financing and co-financing with international financial institutions, and will also continue to attract funds from international funds and private investors through the issuance of green, social and sustainable bonds on local and international capital markets.

It should be noted that the total installed capacity of renewable energy projects that have received financing from the DBK is 560 MW. This is equivalent to 20% of the total volume of green energy produced in the Republic of Kazakhstan as of January 1, 2024.
