Financial institutions
The European Investment Bank (EIB) is hardly known throughout Europe, yet it makes more loans year on year than the World Bank.  Despite good intentions the bank’s loans often have a negative social and environmental impact of which awareness is low. 

Our Financial institutions programme analyses international financial institutions, like the EIB, to ensure greater transparency in terms of the environmental and social impacts of their operations.

We work with both financial institutions themselves and with the NGO community to drive forward transparency and the effective application of EU law.
