Engagement in EIB Climate Bank Roadmap 2021-2025
In November 2019, the EIB’s Board of Directors approved a new level of ambition for the EIB towards climate action and environmental sustainability. The EIB now needs to turn this ambition into reality and would like interested stakeholders to accompany it in developing its roadmap – the Climate Bank Roadmap 2021-2025 – that will guide this transition. The Climate Bank Roadmap will determine how the EIB Group will implement the new ambition over the period 2021 to 2025. The scope of this ambition is broad – touching upon the climate, environmental and social aspects underpinning sustainable development. Engagement on the Climate Bank Roadmap 2021-2025 will complement future public consultations, including most immediately the EIB transport lending policy and the EIB Environmental and Social Statement and the related Standards, which are due to start in 2020. The EIB is soliciting our views and inputs on how the Bank can best achieve its ambitions. This is certainly a critical opportunity for the sustainable, low carbon transport community to have an impact on the activities of the bank, especially as they relate to transport. SLOCAT has gathered inputs from partners as to make a collective transport contribution to the EIB process.
