Ombudsman welcomes Commission's commitment to take greater account of environment and human rights in reviewing export credit agencies

In response to a recommendation from the European Ombudsman, the European Commission has stated that it will seek more information about the projects being financed by export credit agencies (ECAs) - national bodies that give financial support to companies doing business in risky markets.

The Commission, which verifies whether the activities of the ECAs are in line with EU law, is looking for  more detail from Member States, notably on how ECA projects are assessed with regards to the environment, human rights and sustainable lending.
