The EIB Statement on Environmental and Social Principles and Standards sets the policy context for the protection of the environment and human well-being.

    An EIB Environmental and Social Handbook provides an operational translation of those standards grouped across 10 thematic areas. In order to achieve sustainability objectives, the EIB relies to a large extent on activities undertaken by our clients – the borrowers and project promoters.
