The European Investment Bank, one of the world’s largest multinational lenders, is the lending arm of the EU. We operate both inside and outside the European Union.
The majority of EIB lending is attributed to projects in EU Member States (about 90% of the total volume) supporting the continued development and integration of the Union.
Outside the EU, the EIB’s international financial operations help address imbalances and establish closer collaborative partnerships, stimulate a stable and open world economy and enable the cross-pollination of expertise and technologies.
As the EU bank, about 90% of our funding is directed towards promoting sustainable growth and job creation in the Member States. This includes support of regional policies such as those in the Baltic Sea and Danube areas.
