Financing across the globe

Our key investments around the world help create stability, sustainable growth and fight climate change everywhere.

Over the last 10 years (2012-2021), we invested more than €70 billion beyond the European Union

The current crises require that these billions be turned into trillions by working with new partners, global financial institutions and the private sector.

Global solutions

Challenge:
Only 3% of the almost 8 billion vaccine doses given globally have been administered in Africa, and only around 8% of Africans are fully vaccinated, compared with more than 60% in many high-income countries.

Solution:
A ground-breaking global initiative to ease the health and economic impact of the pandemic means that poor countries will get access to COVID-19 vaccine in Africa

 

More solutions for COVID-19

Challenge:
Low-income countries are the most vulnerable to physical risks stemming from climate change.  The most-exposed regions include sub-Saharan Africa, particularly the Sahel; South and Southeast Asian economies, particularly those with a high dependence on agriculture and low-lying coastal areas; and small-island nations in the Caribbean and Pacific.

Solution:
In 2021, our climate action and environmental sustainability financing beyond the EU reached €2.7 billion, accounting for 43% of our total financing in these regions. As the EU climate bank, we are committed to devote 50% of our lending to climate action by 2025.

 

More solutions for climate and the environment

Challenge: 
Women are overrepresented among the world’s unbanked. About 980 million women have no account, 56% of unbanked adults globally.

Solution: 
Sheinvest is an EIB initiative to mobilise €2 billion of investment for better access to finance for African women.

 

More solutions for gender and inclusion

Challenge: 
Small and medium businesses form the backbone of economies across the globe. However, one of the biggest constraints on their growth is the lack of access to finance: 23.7% of sub-Saharan Africa’s firms listed access to finance as their biggest obstacle, which is the highest rate among developing economies.

Solution: 
Supporting small entrepreneurs across Africa is at the heart of the EIB's contribution to the Team Europe Global Response to COVID-19. Our partnership with microfinance institution Kafo Jiginew in Mali, will improve access to finance to 90,000 smallholders to expand their activity.
