The European Investment Bank is the European Union's long term lending institution. Established back in 1958, under the Treaty of Rome, the EIB supports the EUs priority objectives, especially European integration and the development of economically weak regions. Recently, the Bank has also been actively supporting European R&D projects as part of EU's objective of building the world's leading knowledge-based economy.

Years of crisis have posed a threat to Europe’s potential for innovative growth and dulled our competitive edge. Competitiveness relies on investment. In Europe, good projects currently struggle to find investment. Money is available in the system but economic uncertainly stops many investors from taking risks. The Investment Plan for Europe is putting our money back to work – for the benefit of all Europeans.
The EIB is the largest public lending institution expected to foster development within and outside the European Union. Yet this noble ambition is accompanied by less noble deeds. The Polish A4 motorway construction project illustrates how the EIB pursues environmental protection and improvement of quality of life in reality. Improper environment impact assessment, the lack of public consultation, minimal environmental and social standards made the NGOs rise up and organise a "no reform, no money" campaign.

Back in 2007 the European Union launched its plan to fight climate change. At the EU bank, we needed an idea to mobilise the force of capital markets for a good end: raise money for green projects. This is how the world's first Green Bonds, which we called Climate Awareness Bonds, were born. "What Green Bonds bring to the market is transparency," says Philippe Zaouati, CEO of Mirova Responsible Investment in this video. Discover in images some of the projects financed and what difference Green Bonds can make for a healthier planet.

We have recently witnessed a rise of US investment banks and a decline of their European competitors. Should we worry? Does it matter whether European corporates are served by US or European investment banks? Meanwhile, since 2015, Chinese investment banks have overtaken American and European investment banks in the Asia-Pacific market. Dirk Schoenmaker explored these issues and more in conversation with Sylvie Matherat.
