The European Investment Bank (EIB) signed a €250 million loan agreement with AB Electrolux in Stockholm today. The Swedish white goods and home appliances manufacturer will use the financing to boost its research and development in the areas of energy efficiency and digitalisation. The financing signed today is the fourth EIB operation with Electrolux and comes after a similar facility signed in 2015, which also highlights the need for continuing innovation in areas such as energy efficiency in the face of climate change.
The first part of the 2021-2022 EIB Climate Survey explores people’s views on climate change in a rapidly changing world. The results from this release focus on citizens’ perceptions of climate change and the actions they expect their country to take to combat it.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) has signed a SEK 1 billion (EUR 99 million) loan agreement with Hemsö Fastighets AB. The Swedish property owner will use the up to 25 years long-term financing facility to create more energy efficient social infrastructure in Sweden and Finland. In total, nine buildings for social services, including nursing homes, a medical facility, pre-schools, school facilities and combinations of these will be built or redeveloped to ‘nearly-zero-energy-building’ (NZEB) standards. Eight of the properties are located in Sweden and concern new buildings, whereas one is located in Finland and concerns a full redevelopment and new extension.
