The second part of the 2022-2023 European Investment Bank (EIB) Climate Survey explores people’s views on climate change in a rapidly changing world. The results from this release focus on people’s individual behaviour and the actions they are taking to combat climate change.
The EIB Group — which includes the European Investment Bank (EIB) and its subsidiary the European Investment Fund (EIF) — and the European Commission held a series of presentations today to launch the InvestEU programme in Slovenia, highlighting potential investment areas in the country that could receive support. With an EU budget guarantee of €26.2 billion, this investment support programme aims to mobilise financing of more than €372 billion across Europe by 2027. It will back the European Union's strategic priorities such as the European Green Deal, the digital transition, and social and general interest projects in education, health and housing. A minimum of 30% of this financing will go to investments to combat climate change or mitigate its effects. The event was opened by Slovenian Minister of Finance Klemen Boštjančič, EIB Vice-President Lilyana Pavlova, and Principal Adviser at the European Commission Markus Schulte.
These are some of the results from the latest yearly Climate Survey conducted in August 2022 and published today by the European Investment Bank (EIB). The EIB is the lending arm of the European Union and the world’s largest multilateral lender for climate action projects.
