Effy Ritter
Associate Director, Head of Climate Risk at EBRD


Effy Ritter formed and currently leads the climate risk team at the EBRD. An experienced finance professional, having worked with several global investment banks, she brings deep expertise in credit risk and front-line banking.

Under her leadership, the EBRD has published annual TCFD reports over the last three years. The latest, published October 2022, presented enhanced metrics and targets including coal and oil exposures as well as labelled bonds and green finance targets.

Her team has developed specific methodologies to assess both physical and carbon transition risk and championed a shift in EBRD’s assessment of climate risk to client assessment versus project specific.

A strong believer in transparency, she formed the joint MDB TCFD working group to promote collaboration and sharing of ideas among multilateral development banks.

Based in at the EBRD headquarters in London she has an M.A from Brandies university in Massachusetts.
