The EIB Group Environmental Statement 2020 provides information concerning internal environmental performance and activities of the European Investment Bank (EIB) Group in 2019. It has been prepared and validated in accordance with the EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) and ISO14001 standard and reports on the goal set out in EIB Group EMASA Environmental Policy, adopted in 2018.
This document is the EIB Group’s third Environmental Statement and it aligns with our previous Environmental Statements of 2018 and 2019. It was originally expected to be published in June 2020, but was delayed due to Covid 19 restrictions in place at the time of the external audit.
“EMAS offers us the framework to manage and continually improve our internal environmental performance. Furthermore, we influence our suppliers and service providers through the adoption of Green Public Procurement (GPP) practices by including environmental criteria in our tendering processes.” W. Hoyer, President.
