“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

Guided by EU policy, including commitments to the Paris Agreement on Climate Action and to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the EIB Group fosters sustainable growth within the EU and abroad. This approach drives all of our initiatives, products and activities.

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.
