    Brazil and the EIB

    Since 1997, we have been supporting Brazil’s green goals by investing in renewable energy, sustainable urban development and micro-enterprises.

    Brazil is the largest recipient of EIB finance in Latin America. Our financing supports Brazil’s efforts towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and climate neutrality, with an emphasis on climate change mitigation, social and economic infrastructure, such as water and sanitation and local private sector development.

    In Brazil, we have focused on:

    Climate action and energy

    We have supported multiple wide-ranging climate action projects in Brazil including:

    • Building of wind parks, solar facilities and onshore wind turbines in northeast Brazil.
    • Financing the installation of photovoltaic panels on homes, small and medium-sized businesses and rural properties.
    • Scaling up renewable energy infrastructure, renewable energy generation and power distribution projects.
    • Installation of solar panels, small-scale hydropower and other renewable sources.
    • Improving water supply, sanitation coverage and treatment of drinkable water and wastewater.
    Urban development

    To promote sustainable urban development and improve people’s daily lives, we have made significant investments towards reliable water infrastructure, new cycle lanes, well-lit public parks, street lighting and the development of green spaces in Brazil.

    Private sector development

    We have supported micro-enterprises, particularly the most vulnerable and very low-income borrowers, as well as female-led businesses in the country. We have also provided financial support to small and medium-sized enterprises which were impacted by COVID-19 in Brazil.
