Making the "EU Climate Bank" a reality


Next week, the European Investment Bank (EIB) will organise its annual  EIB-CSO seminar. Ahead of the event, Eurodad, together with 47 CSO organisations sent the following open letter, calling on the EIB to take necessary steps to truly become the EU Climate Bank

While we welcome the progress made by the EIB to fight climate change since 2019, the EIB is not yet a 'Climate Bank'. In order to become fully aligned with the Paris Agreement, the EIB urgently needs to take the following steps:

  1. All EIB operations need to be aligned with the objectives of the Paris Agreement
  2. Further exclude high-carbon and environmentally harmful operations from the EIB portfolio
