The EIB participates at the Carbon Expo 2006, an global Carbon Market Fair and Conference held in Cologne (Germany) from 10-12 May 2006.
As the EU's long term financing institution, EIB's operations are driven by EU policies and objectives. Accordingly, climate change and environmental protection form part of the EIB's lending priorities.
In response to the EU climate change policy designed to implement the Kyoto Protocol, the EIB has launched a number of climate change initiatives specifically aimed at supporting investment projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promoting the development of the emerging carbon market.
Publications and information about the Bank's climate change and environmental activities are available at the EIB stand (Hall:10.1, Aisle:D, N°:048).
