Urban development sector

Cities are the source of about 75% of the world’s CO2 emissions but they also represent a valuable ally in the fight against climate change and the drive towards Circular Economy. Mayors are often the ones who work on practical and long-term solutions, being responsible for purchasing zero-emission public transport, constructing energy efficient social housing and subsidising energy-saving and photovoltaic systems in buildings.

The EIB tackles environmental and social issues by supporting projects that make life in urban areas more sustainable. We support investments into integrated urban development, urban regeneration and renewal, as well as into water and waste management services, sustainable mobility, education and health infrastructure that benefit all citizens.

We help urban authorities access tailor-made solutions and accelerate their urban investment projects through URBIS, a dedicated advisory platform.
