The EIB adopted a revised transport lending policy on 13 December 2011. The revised transport lending policy sets the guiding principles and selection criteria that will reinforce the Bank's contribution to this sector, in particular taking into account climate change concerns.
The transport lending policy was revised following a formal public consultation that was launched in 2010.
The new transport lending policy fully takes into account the European Commission White Paper for transport "Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area –Towards a competitive and resource efficient transport system” that was adopted on 28 March 2011.
