EIB Impact 2015

The EU bank’s operations will have a considerable impact on Europe’s economy, adding 830 000 jobs by 2017 and 1.4 million by 2030.

Under the January 2013 to March 2015 capital increase, the EIB signed 1024 contracts from 812 operations across the EU totaling EUR 142 billion. This catalysed total investment of EUR 372 billion.

Our economic model showed the short-term results by 2017 as:

  • Additional GDP of 0.8%
  • Additional employment of 830 000 jobs

The model projects the long-term impact by 2030 as:

  • Additional GDP of 1.1%
  • Additional employment of 1.4 million jobs
  • Jobs increase equivalent to 0.65% of EU employment
