Tackling global challenges together

“We all need to raise our game and inject new rigour and effectiveness into the way we operate together.
We must be prepared to abandon some of our long-held preconceptions about development.”
Werner Hoyer, President of the EIB

As the EU bank, the European Investment Bank acts as a powerful multiplier of the European Union external action. In 2016, 10% of our financing, EUR 8 billion, went to thousands of projects outside the EU. The bank helps the EU meet its objectives globally including to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris climate agreement.

At the EIB we believe that the need for multilateral action and effective support of development
and growth outside Europe has never been greater. Through our projects we aim at creating jobs and opportunity, a clean planet and a better quality of life for all of us.
