NGOs letter on the EIB’s review process of the Environmental and Social Sustainability Framework


This joint advocacy letter urges the European Investment Bank to ensure a meaningful public consultation. 

Co-signed by 35 NGOs and civil society organisations, including Eurodad, the letter calls on the EIB to extend the consultation period until September 2021.

The proposed process excludes a large number of EIB’s stakeholders from meaningful participation in a proposed review. Considering the bank's  commitment to strengthen its development finance work, it is regrettable that it has put in place a process that does not allow for adequate consultation with those most exposed to impacts of its development operations.
