Climate action defines our core mission as the EU’s climate bank. The EIB, the world’s biggest multilateral financial institution and one of the largest providers of climate finance, plays a leading role in mobilising the finance needed to keep global warming below 2˚C, aiming for 1.5˚C.
In our effort to achieve this target, we place the human parameter at the centre of economic investment, so it is valuable to have an assessment of public opinion towards climate change.
Since 2018, we have been organising large-scale climate surveys across Europe, China and the US. The aim is to inform the broader debate on citizens’ attitudes and expectations in terms of climate action across the globe.The findings are particularly relevant at a time when climate is one of the top priorities in the EU’s agenda, and following the EIB’s adoption of a fossil-fuel free energy lending policy and a new climate roadmap.
