Sag 1065/2020/PB - Indledt den Mandag | 27 juli 2020 - Den vedrørte institution Den Europæiske Investeringsbank
The case concerns the European Investment Bank's (EIB) practice on disclosing environmental information related to projects that it finances directly. The complainant considers that the EIB’s current practice prevents the public from fully expressing its views on environmental issues before the EIB takes its decision to finance projects.
The Ombudsman opened an inquiry and inspected certain files and documents held by the EIB. Following this, the Ombudsman sent a preliminary assessment to the EIB with suggestions for improvement.
