The “Fossil Free EIB” campaign is organized jointly by various civil society organizations across Europe and beyond.

As organizations working to build equitable societies through sustainable finance and determined to protect our environment and our climate, we believe that public banks such as the European Investment Bank (EIB) should lead the way out of the fossil-fuel based energy system that has brought our planet to the current climate emergency.

As the bank decides this year whether to walk this necessary path or not – and thus to shift its funds from fossil fuels to renewables investments in its new energy policy, we aim to offer our contribution to this process, that will be decisive for EU citizens, European public finance and the climate worldwide.

We will do this by both raising awareness about the importance of the EIB’s energy choices, and by officially expressing our point of view as civil society organizations, through our submission to the public consultation on this policy review opened by the bank.
