Financing Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation: The Role of the European Investment Bank

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is the world’s largest multilateral provider of climate finance, committing at least 25 percent of its funding to climate change adaptation and mitigation in Europe and developing countries. Over the next five years, the EIB will provide around $100 billion for climate-related projects. At this event, Klaus Trömel, former secretary general of the EIB and Rice MBA ’85, will discuss the types of projects and the countries in which the EIB is planning to invest.
