The European Investment Bank (EIB) and Deutsche Leasing have announced a project designed to support small business and mid-cap leases for a total project cost of €560 million, with a total of €200 million of EIB financing approved.
In 2023, the European Investment Bank (EIB) Group has actively supported the green transition in Germany. The overall financing committed rose to €8.6 billion from €6.6 billion in the previous year. With this increase, the EIB Group remained on its steep growth path for its German operations: In 2021, investments in the country only stood at €5.5 billion.
The EIB is contributing €150 million to the 2038 Lusatia programme, which aims to minimise the social and economic impact of the phase-out of lignite and the transition to climate neutrality in the region. The EIB is cooperating closely on this with the regional promotional bank Investitionsbank des Landes Brandenburg (ILB).
