In 2022, the EIB Group’s (European Investment Bank, European Investment Fund) financing agreed for projects in Poland reached €5.45 billion, with almost half of the new commitments (49 percent) devoted to climate action and environmental sustainability. For the year, the Group continued its support in four priority areas: sustainable development of cities and regions; sustainable transformation of the energy sector; development of digitalization, innovation, and human capital; and development of small and medium-sized enterprises and mid-cap companies.
“2022 has presented us with completely new challenges. EU economies had to deal with the effects of Russia's aggression against Ukraine, the energy crisis, inflation, and the still-felt impact of the pandemic. The EIB responded immediately by mobilizing financing for Ukraine and support for EU countries hosting refugees – Poland, which has given shelter to the largest number of refugees, has been granted more than €2 billion from the Solidarity Package,” Vice-President of EIB prof. Teresa Czerwińska commented.
