FOCUS ON CLIMATE
The imminent risks posed by climate change globally call for profound changes to the way we do business in the 21st century. The EIB Group is realigning its activity to reflect the need for urgent and ambitious action to combat climate change. In this process, it will support countries, cities and other public and private clients in their transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient future.
SIGNED AND SEALED
In March 2019, the EIB Group successfully implemented an environmental management system in accordance with the European Union’s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). The EIB Group now joins the wider EMAS family including EU institutions in Luxembourg such as the European Court of Auditors, European Court of Justice, European Parliament and European Commission.
THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS GUIDE OUR WORK
As the EU bank, we play an integral role in the European Union’s efforts to implement the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, including the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We consider the SDGs to be a vital guideline for a safe and secure future that brings prosperity and inclusiveness for all.
