8 8 The Climate Change Policy of the European Union: A very ambitious climate reduction targets ( Agenda). By 2020, the EU committed to: 1.Unilateral 20% GHG emission reductions with respect to 1990 levels. 1.20% of the overall EU energy consumption will be from renewable energy sources. 1.20% of energy savings through increased energy efficiency in the EU. 16/02/20148 European Investment Bank Climate Change impacts and the EU response

9 9 EIB Framework for Climate Action 16/02/2014 European Investment Bank

10 10 EIBs basis for action Promote low carbon, climate resilient growth through finance at scale of climate friendly projects Help public and private sector promoters to prepare and finance low carbon projects (potentially with TA) Promote market based financing instruments Provide capital relief for key climate counterparts (utilities, intermediaries) Provide risk sharing credit and equity funds to finance and develop low carbon technology growth Develop carbon markets 16/02/2014 European Investment Bank

11 1116/02/ European Investment Bank EIBs medium term activities 1.Continue to align the Bank corporate objectives, targets, principles and standards with the evolving EU and international climate policy: The Kyoto Protocol and the Copenhagen Joint Statement to the UNFCCC Parties (ADB, AfDB, EBRD, EIB, IMF, and WB/IFC) 2.Gradually mainstream climate change considerations into Bank operations, building staff awareness, capacity, and expertise 3.Align sector lending policies on reducing greenhouse gas emissions 4.Finance the development of cost-effective early-stage low-carbon technologies 5.Help sovereign and private clients deal with climate risks and market failures by developing a full array of new financing instruments to lever private, public and own resources.

12 12 EIBs early results Climate change lending is a key EIB objective, focusing on Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy and sustainable transport. EUR 16.9bn for climate change in 2009, 20% of total lending. EUR 4.7bn for RE, EUR 1.5bn for EE, EUR 4.7bn for CC-related R&D and EUR 5.5bn for sustainable transport. Climate Change a Key Performance Indicator in EIB, with annual volume targets: 20% of total lending in 2010 and 22% in subsequent years. 16/02/2014 European Investment Bank

13 1316/02/ European Investment Bank Climate Change action embedded in all EIB lending Assessing carbon footprint of financed projects Accounting for the cost of carbon emissions of projects when calculating their ERR Screening projects for climate risks and requesting promoters to effect design changes where appropriate Screening early stage projects to identify potential for generating carbon credits

14 14 Financing Instruments outside the EU EIBs traditional loan products Outside Europe EIB lending is determined by multi-annual mandates by the EU Member States New financial instruments for sustainable energy: ESF, Facility for Energy Sustainability and Security of Supply (EUR 4.5bn in on top of existing external mandate), promotes cleaner energy growth paths by promoting the transfer of clean technologies between the EU and developing countries Six carbon funds ( Multilateral Carbon Credit Fund (MCCF) with the EBRD – Carbon Fund for Europe (CFE) with the World Bank (IBRD) – The EIB/KfW Carbon Programme - Post-2012 Carbon Credit Fund, with Caisse des Dépôts, ICO, KfW and NIB – Fonds Capital Carbone Maroc with CDG Maroc and CDG France) 16/02/2014 European Investment Bank
