EIB Vice-President Gelsomina Vigliotti said: “Italians are among the most optimistic in Europe when it comes to the effects of policies addressing the climate emergency. They clearly see both quality of life and the job market being impacted positively by the green transition in the future. But they are also concerned about the long-term impact of climate change, and the younger generations in particular anticipate major changes in their way of living. As the EU climate bank, it is our responsibility to address these concerns by working with the public and private sector to finance a resilient low-carbon transition, while ensuring no one is left behind.”
