A RESPONSIBLE INSTITUTION
Change starts from within. This is true not just for every individual, but for every institution as well. That is why at the EIB Group we care about transparency and accountability. We strive to constantly improve our internal organisation and our role in the community. As a responsible employer, we stand for equal opportunities and life-long learning. The EIB Institute complements this commitment with initiatives for the common good inside and beyond the European Union.
TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY
It is a matter of principle that the EIB Group sets an example with the transparency and accountability of our work. We proactively publish information on our role, policies and operations. This improves both the effectiveness and sustainability of our strategies, policies and financed operations, as we gain valuable feedback from our stakeholders.
COMPLIANCE AND INTEGRITY
Compliance and integrity are core elements of the EIB Group’s corporate culture. They are the shared responsibility of all EIB Group staff and members of the governing bodies. Ethical and compliant behaviour is embedded in relevant policies, procedures and practices.
As part of our commitment to accountability and in line with international best practice, the EIB Group has a Complaints Mechanism that enables stakeholders to raise their concerns about the decisions and activities of the EIB Group.
DIALOGUE WITH CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANISATIONS
Involving civil society across all our activities and being transparent is of the utmost importance to the EIB. We believe that being open improves the quality and sustainability of the projects we finance and increases accountability towards all our stakeholders. It is also essential to build trust and meet public expectations.
Since 2012, the EIB Institute has been promoting and supporting numerous projects inside and beyond the European Union’s communities. The Institute’s activities focus on supporting higher education and research activities (knowledge), promoting social innovation and social entrepreneurship (social) and encouraging cultural initiatives (arts and culture).
EMPLOYER OF CHOICE
Passion might not be the first thing that people associate with the financial sector, but at the EIB Group, a shared passion for the European Union and for sustainable development drives us. We advocate our values through our recruitment policies and the benefits provided to our staff. We promote the inclusion of qualified and experienced talent irrespective of gender, age, racial or ethnic origin, religion or beliefs, sexual orientation or disability.
