CEE Bankwatch Network works across the central and eastern European region to monitor the activities of international financial institutions and propose constructive environmental and social alternatives to the policies and projects they support.
Who we monitor
Promoting market economies, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development's notion of transition is often blind to its impacts on people and the planet.
One of the world's biggest public lenders, the European Investment Bank notoriously neglects environmental and social aspects and acts far away from public control.
Incoherent funding priorities and inadequate national implementation often inhibit real social, economical and environmental sustainability.
Two European public banks are currently reviewing their energy lending policies. We call for an end to coal subsidies.
