Accreditation to the Green Climate Fund

On 27th of February, 2019 in Songdo, Republic of Korea during the 22nd meeting of Green Climate Fund (GCF) Board accreditation application of “Environmental Projects Implementation Unit” SI has been approved. Over the past two and a half years “EPIU” has been working diligently for going through the required stages for accreditation.
