Civil society and stakeholder engagement
Board of Directors' level
Every year, we invite civil society to participate in a seminar with our Board of Directors and the Management Committee, which is a unique opportunity for a frank and open exchange with the Bank’s governing bodies.
We organise public consultations and provide opportunities for open dialogue on key policies and strategies. We also regularly host workshops and other events on subjects of relevance both for the Bank and for our stakeholders. We also hold bilateral meetings with civil society organisations on specific issues.
We require promoters to implement open and transparent engagement approaches with all relevant stakeholders in operations financed by EIB, as enshrined in Standard 2 of our Environmental and Social Standards. We firmly believe that stakeholder engagement conducted throughout the project cycle enhances our positive impact on the ground.
