The second part of the 2021-2022 EIB Climate Survey explores people’s views on climate change in a rapidly changing world. The results from this release focus on citizens’ individual behaviour and the actions they are taking to combat climate change.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) and European Investment Fund (EIF), which together form the EIB Group, provided a record amount of nearly €95 billion in financing in 2021, a great deal of which — some €45 billion — went towards supporting Europe’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) during the crisis period. It was also a record year in Belgium itself, with over €3.42 billion in finance for Belgian projects. This included nearly €2.7 billion in financing from the EIB, and a further €718.5 million via the European Investment Fund, the EIB subsidiary that focuses exclusively on finance for SMEs.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) has entered into a EUR 100m loan agreement with the DPG Media Group. The agreement is part of a major investment project to the tune of EUR 244m by the DPG Media Group. The loan will be used to finance the development of DPG’s digital media platforms in Belgium and the Netherlands. The EIB’s financing will be used to accelerate the digital transposition of existing brands and media and create new, secure and qualitative digital networks for advertisers and consumers on the other.
