EIB Transport Lending Policy


A number of new EU policy initiatives have contributed to the recognition of a need to have a fresh look at EU transport policies. The EU 2020 strategy defined the ambition of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, the 2011 White Paper on Transport highlighted the importance of an innovation orientation and a modern infrastructure as prerequisites for realising a vision of a competitive and sustainable transport system, and the Connecting Europe Facility initiative outlined a plan for massive investments to boost EU transport networks.

It is against this complex and demanding backdrop that the EIB engaged in a review of its transport lending policy, issued in 2007. This review consolidates and strengthens the ability of the Bank’s interventions to spark a revitalisation of the EU transport sector and by doing so, to support the overall economic revival policy of the EU in a long-term sustainable way.
