How the European Investment Bank discloses environmental information in relation to projects that it finances directly
Primer 1065/2020/PB - Preiskava uvedena dne Ponedeljek | 27 julij 2020 - Zadevna institucija ali organ Evropska investicijska banka
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 expressing views on environmental issues before the EIB takes its decision to finance projects.
The Ombudsman opened an inquiry and, as a first step, sought to inspect certain files and documents held by the EIB.
