France and the EIB

The EIB has worked with France since 1959. We backed Airbus and its facilities in Toulouse, Nantes and St. Nazaire, where thousands of jobs have been created thanks to our lending. We supported infrastructure around the country, in addition to innovation, energy, digital transition and circular economy projects. We invested in new furnace technologies that reduce titanium waste.
