Kommunalkredit Public Consulting KPC has positioned itself as an expert partner for climate action and environmental projects, specifically in the areas of renewable energy, energy efficiency, mobility management, municipal water management and contaminated land remediation.

To us, a sustainable approach to our business is both an imperative and a commitment we truly believe in. And yet, a profitoriented business as we understand it goes well beyond economic thinking. As a company that works primarily on behalf of public agencies in the areas of environment and development, we hold ourselves to a very standard when it comes to social and ecological values. We want to be an example to follow.

When it comes to international consulting services, we have specialized on consulting for development cooperation and international financing institutions, especially in EU candidate countries in southeast Europe, Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Mediterranean countries. These countries have an especially high need for expertise in the development of municipal environmental infrastructure, the improvement of energy efficiency in the manufacturing industry and the public sector as well as support for public authorities when it comes to managing EU subsidies. We have numerous projects in the area of national consulting services that can serve as references, among them the compilation of (market) studies, the implementation of evaluation projects and the creation of investment plans for wastewater management associations. Our international clients include, among others, the European Union (EU), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the European Investment Bank (EIB), the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), the Credit Institute (KfW), the French Development Bank (AfD), Improving municipal services in Moldova In recent years, Moldova has made progress in the area of economic development and has also succeeded in reducing poverty levels. However, despite many efforts at implementing reforms, the public administration still shows structural weaknesses. These are reflected, above all, in the insufficient quality of municipal services including drinking water supply, wastewater disposal, waste disposal and road maintenance. KPC, on behalf of the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), provides support in these areas by helping create medium-term investment plans and by helping improve local skills. In addition, KPC assists in preparing projects from a technical and administrative perspective.

The Austrian Development Agency (ADA) is responsible for the implementation of all programs and projects. KPC supports ADA in technical and scientific matters and provides assistance for the coordination of projects in the water sector. KPC’s main focus is on policy and strategy consulting, donor coordination on the European and international level as well as monitoring of financing plans.
