European Investment Bank
The European Investment Bank is the lending arm of the European Union. It is the biggest multilateral financial institution in the world and one of the largest providers of climate finance.
Since its establishment in 1958, the EU bank has invested over a trillion euros. While climate action is a part of everything it does, its activities also focus on the following priority areas: climate and environment, development, innovation and skills, small and medium-sized businesses, infrastructure and cohesion. The EIB works closely with other EU institutions to foster European integration, promote the development of the EU and support EU policies in over 160 countries around the world. The bank offers loans, guarantees, equity investments and advisory services.
EIB offers loans, guarantees, equity investments and advisory services. It lends to clients of all sizes to support sustainable growth and job creation. Its support is often central to attracting other investors. EIB stimulates and catalyzes private capital through investment in equity and funds. It provides guarantees covering the risks of large and small projects. We also provide loan portfolios to make your projects more attractive to other investors. EIB also makes technical and financial expertise available to its clients to develop and implement investment projects and programmes, and to improve institutional and regulatory frameworks. Its mandates and partnerships allow EIB to better serve existing clients, find new partners, enter new markets and help more people across the world.
