Climate Solutions, the European Investment Bank’s series of blog posts, podcasts and an ebook, won the In2 SABRE Award in the Best Use of Social Publishing/Blogs category in the same week that it’s podcast downloads surged to 120 000 this year. It’s a second accolade for the series, which won a European Excellence Award in December, and the fourth major communications award for the Bank in the last 18 months.
The Climate Solutions series aims to shape the debate about how best to fight climate change, providing actionable information for citizens. The podcast’s first season was based on expert blog posts. The second season highlighted the results of the EIB Climate Survey and featured experts from the EIB, which is the EU climate bank, Sciences Po and polling company BVA. The current season defines green investments and is being downloaded faster than any of our previous podcasts.
The In2 SABRE Awards are among the biggest international communications awards.
Two other EIB products received In2 SABRE Certificates of Excellence: Does This Change Everything?, the podcast and blog series about the impact of COVID-19 on all aspects of life and business; and the EIB Group Activity Report 2020, in the Annual Report & CSR Report category. The EIB’s other podcasts, such as Does This Change Everything?, Monster Under the Bed and A Dictionary of Finance have contributed to a total 300 000 downloads this year.
The EIB Group Activity Report and the Climate Survey are also finalists for the Europe/Middle East/Africa SABRE Awards, which will be announced on 9 June.
