Better conditions for investments in Bio-Based Industries and the Blue Economy

02.06.2017

The European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Commission (EC) have pledged their stronger commitment to the Circular Economy and Bioeconomy sectors in Europe through a set of actions aimed at facilitating access to finance.

An InnovFin Advisory (IFA) study on access to finance conditions for investments in Bio-Based Industries and the Blue Economy was published. The study brings together information from projects in these sectors within the European Union and evaluates the need and potential for dedicated financial instruments and policy actions at the EU and Member State levels that can catalyse private sector investments.

The EIB and the EC are expected to announce further steps towards offering fully integrated access-to-finance solutions in the next weeks.
