The European Investment Bank (EIB) still has a long way to go when it comes to making sure its lending does not contribute to human rights violation. At the occasion of the EIB annual dialogue with civil society on the 2nd of February, 16 organisations sent a letter to call on the EIB Directors to guarantee the prioritisation of human rights in all the Bank’s operations.

The letter outlines key recommendations for the EIB to improve on this issue in light of the upcoming review of its environmental and social standards.
