How the European Investment Bank discloses environmental information in relation to projects it finances that are carried out by intermediaries
Case 1251/2020/PB - Opened on Monday | 27 July 2020 - Institution concerned European Investment Bank
The case concerns how the European Investment Bank (EIB) discloses environmental information related to projects it finances that are carried out by intermediaries (indirect financing). The complainant considers that the EIB does not gather sufficient environmental information about these projects and that it thus does not disclose sufficient information to enable the public to express views on environmental issues before the EIB takes its decision to finance these projects.
The Ombudsman opened an inquiry and, as a first step, sought to inspect certain files and documents held by the EIB.
