The City of Poznań will significantly reduce the impact of urban transport on the environment and improve the quality of air that citizens breathe. The Municipal Transport Company in Poznan will soon receive 37 zero-emission buses manufactured by Solaris Bus & Coach. The transaction worth over PLN 111 million was financed by Santander Bank Polska and Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego (BGK).

Poznań is another city that, thanks to the support of Santander Bank Polska, Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego and Solaris Bus & Coach, has increased its fleet of zero-emission buses. In July 2020 a similar investment was made in Krakow - the city ordered 50 electric buses. By 2025 local government units should reach the threshold of 30% zero-emission vehicles. Implementation of such measures results from the need to care for sustainable development of the country and the health of city residents.

This is another joint transaction of Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego and Santander Bank Polska supporting Polish entrepreneurs.  

At Santander Bank Polska, we put special emphasis on increasing financing related to sustainable development as part of our responsible banking strategy. We are happy that together with BGK, we have once again supported our client in the production process related to the delivery of zero-emission buses by applying unconventional trade finance solutions,” comments Grzegorz Pojnar, Export Finance Director at Santander Bank Polska.

Electric buses produced by Solaris Bus&Coach are ecological and modern.  They help improve the functioning of public transport and are one of the effective ways to fight smog.
