Untangling the polycrisis
As the World Economic Forum in Davos focuses on the ‘polycrisis’, President Hoyer explains why this is a time of ‘polyopportunity’ for investment
From a breakthrough vaccine against COVID-19 to clean energy in Poland or safer drinking water in Lesotho, the European Investment Bank finances sustainable projects that have a positive impact on people and the planet.
In the spotlight
The EU’s climate bank
The European Investment Bank is one of the world’s main financers of climate action. The decade 2021-2030 is critical to address our planet's climate and environment emergency. To achieve this, trillions of investment are required. The European Union and the EIB Group play a leading role in implementing the Paris Agreement. We place sustainability at the heart of our activities.
Outside the European Union, UK and EFTA, the EIB provided €7.2 billion of financing in 2021. The EU bank is active in more than 160 countries worldwide and is a key partner of Team Europe.
Our key investments around the world help create stability, promote sustainable growth and fight climate change. Over the last 10 years, we have invested more than €70 billion beyond the European Union.
