The European Investment Bank (EIB) is the European Union’s bank. Owned by the 28 EU Member States, the EIB provides finance and expertise for sound and sustainable investment projects in over 160 countries worldwide. Climate action is a key priority for us. We finance low-carbon and climate-resilient growth and act as a catalyst to mobilise private finance for climate action, encouraging others to match our long-term investment. Building on over fifty years’ experience and know-how, we complement our traditional lending with innovative finance products and technical assistance tools to help with project preparation, development and implementation. As the world’s largest multilateral borrower and lender by volume, we are proud to have issued EUR 4.3bn of Climate Awareness Bonds last year and invested EUR 90bn in climate action projects over the past five years.
