SUSTAINABILITY INSIGHTS NEWSLETTER

Dear Reader,

We invite you to read the www.sustaincase.com newsletter below (if not visible please click here to view it in your browser).

Today we demonstrate through our case study:
The European Investment Bank’s (EIB) strategies and initiatives to support sustainable employment and growth in Europe
As the bank of the European Union, the EIB steps up its response to the changing economic conditions that occurred as a consequence of the 2008 global financial crisis. It does so through a range of policies and initiatives aimed at boosting jobs and growth in Europe in the face of a debt and investment crisis.

By identifying, measuring, managing and changing the European Central Bank is essentially in control of this very important aspect of CSR/ Sustainability.

The case studies sent out weekly through the FBRH SustainCase Newsletter are intended to give you insights on how you can maintain and increase the value of your company, through a structured process and the use of the Global Reporting Initiative's framework. We demonstrate how companies worldwide are dealing with their most important impacts (economic, environmental and social) and how they are succeeding in the long-term by building and maintaining favourable reputations and relationships with key stakeholders who can hold them back or stop them from reaching their objectives.

I thank you for taking the time to read through this letter. I hope the information provided through the www.sustaincase.com newsletter is of value to you and your company. If you wish to unsubscribe please follow this link.

Case study: The European Investment Bank’s (EIB) strategies and initiatives to support sustainable employment and growth in Europe
Abstract

In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, supporting sustainable employment and growth in Europe is a matter of crucial importance for the EIB as the EU bank, as it lies at the heart of Europe’s economic revival. In order to support sustainable employment and growth in Europe the EIB took action to:

• finance strategic new projects
• offer technical assistance and advisory services via a European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH)
• support innovation and skills through initiatives such as InnovFin (between 2014 and 2020 it is expected that the InnovFin products will make available more than EUR 24bn of financing for research and innovation) and
• provide access to finance for smaller businesses – in 2014 the EIB Group financed SMEs and midcaps in Europe to the tune of EUR 25.5bn
