    Since its establishment in 1958, the EU bank has invested over a trillion euros. While climate action is a part of everything we do, our activities focus on the following priority areas:

    • climate and environment,
    • cohesion,
    • innovation, digital and human capital,
    • small and medium-sized businesses,
    • sustainable cities and regions, and
    • sustainable energy and natural resources.

    The EIB works closely with other EU institutions to foster European integration, promote the development of the EU and support EU policies in over 160 countries around the world.

    Through EIB Global, set up in 2022 to increase the impact of our development finance, we help address global challenges and create growth and opportunity in all continents.
