The transport sector in the EU must de-carbonize. Is the EIB ready to contribute to it?
Briefing | 26 November 2010
The issue paper provides facts about the EIB’s performance in the transport sector since the approval of the current transport policy in 2007. While transport investments represent a large share of the EIB’s portfolio in the EU 27, transport GHG emissions in the EU are continuously rising.
Overall, the EIB needs to clarify what it wants to achieve with its transport sector lending, and put this in line with EU priorities. Will the EIB be contributing to the achievement of the EU goal of decarbonising the transport sector? Or is it seeking just slightly more efficient business as usual?
