    Infrastructure and the EIB

    Reliable and smart infrastructure is key for economic growth, sustainability and the creation of jobs. It is also crucial in ensuring Europe’s competitiveness.

    As the EU bank, we have made it our top priority to invest in cleaner transport, digital networks, energy efficiency and sustainable urban development. Our lending in urban areas also includes the development of social infrastructure, affordable housing and key public buildings. By financing comprehensive regeneration projects we aim to make neighbourhoods and cities more inclusive in the way they provide citizens with services whilst also investing in cultural heritage.

    Please note: The priority area “Infrastructure and the EIB” is evolving into “Sustainable cities and regions” and “Sustainable energy and natural resources.” Our website will reflect these changes shortly.
