European Investment Bank to cease fossil fuel funding – launch €1 trillion climate investment strategy

The European Investment Bank (EIB) has decided on a new energy lending policy through which EIB will end financing for fossil fuel energy projects. Instead it will focus future financing to accelerate clean energy innovation, energy efficiency and renewables.

Over the next decade, EIB will unlock 1 trillion euro of climate action and environmentally sustainable investment to enable energy decarbonisation throughout the EU, as well as to increase the impact of investment to support energy transformation outside the EU.

Climate is the top issue on the political agenda of our time,” said EIB President Werner Hoyer. “Scientists estimate that we are currently heading for 3-4°C of temperature increase by the end of the century.”

“We will stop financing fossil fuels and we will launch the most ambitious climate investment strategy of any public financial institution anywhere.”
