Our impact on employment - the short- and long-term impact of EUR 232 billion of investment in 2017

The EIB Group has a strong focus on impact. It continuously assesses the macroeconomic contribution of its activities in Europe.

The overall investment signed by the EIB Group within the EU in 2017 alone will, by 2021:

  • have supported EUR 232 billion of investment
  • have added 1.1% to EU GDP
  • have added 1.2 million jobs

By 2036, these same projects signed in a single year will have added:

  • 0.7% to EU GDP and
  • 650 000 jobs
