ELTI Position Paper: Next Generation EU & Factsheets (Enterprises, Health, Renovation Wave & Territorial Development)

The European Council agreement in July 2020 marks a step forward in European construction. The European idea is thereby reinforced. It also sent contradictory signals with less means for European instruments managed by the European Commission. 

Against this background ELTI invites the colegislators to take into account the following considerations mentioned its position paper and factsheets, published on 16 September 2020.

AECM, ELTI & NEFI Position Paper - Overview of measures against the economic impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

Updated 17 June 2020

After the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and the decision of most governments in Europe (as well as other continents) to prioritise “social distancing”, it immediately became clear that these decisions will have a significant impact on the global economy. All governments are reflecting how to support self-employed, solo-entrepreneurs, SMEs on to mid-caps and globally-acting conglomerates, airports and healthcare systems as well as companies in the fields of export, tourism and in many other areas. European Member States also introduced completely new measures with the Maastricht criteria becoming less of a priority.

Face à l'urgence, préservons l'investissement de long terme (FR)  

Virus: long-term investment must be maintained (EN)

by MEP Dominique Riquet and ELTI Chairman Laurent Zylberberg

The current public health crisis has come at a time when persistently low interest rates, large amounts of available liquidity, nationalist retrenchment and the challenges posed by climate change require major efforts to transform our ecosystems.

The first steps to be taken are those urgently needed to address immediate needs: as a result, all efforts must be made to ensure that funding continues to flow within the economy. However, this should not distract attention from the ongoing need to invest for the long term. If our economy were a car, then it has broken down and we need to repair and probably overhaul it to prevent the same problem happening again, as well as refuelling it, which is the role of finance. However, it will all be for nothing if we stop building roads for it to drive on!

ELTI Position Paper - NPBIs ready to fight the COVID-19 economic crisis

The European economy needs support in the current crisis situation. There is a chance to soften the impact of the economic downturn but companies require liquidity immediately and the financing of investments should be continued simultaneously.

The European Union and the Member States have an efficient network of promotional banks and institutions. Today, they have been asked to show their mettle. Promotional instruments should address the needs at national, regional and local levels. National Promotional Banks and Institutions (NPBIs) are best prepared to provide the necessary support on the ground. The first instruments are already working.

*Please note that this event has been postponed to a later date*

Sustainable Finance has gained more and more relevance in our business and the latest policy decisions are pointing even more in this direction. The European Commission presented the European Green Deal which includes a Sustainable Europe Investment Plan and the National Energy and Climate Plans which will trigger more sustainable finance activities of NPBIs. However, ELTI members and the EIB have experience in very different fields of sustainable finance ranging from Green and Sustainable Bonds, sustainable infrastructure projects, energy-efficiency programmes to financing research and development projects in this field. In 2018, ELTI members committed more than 35% of all credit approvals for sustainable projects.

SINV EU 20 Postponement PartnersAn important update from Climate Action regarding the Sustainable Investment Forum Europe 2020.

We deeply regret having to inform you that we have taken the extremely difficult decision to postpone the Sustainable Investment Forum Europe 2020 that was due to take place on 10th March in Paris.

New dates will be announced as soon as possible. This very difficult decision has been made in response to the growing concerns around Coronavirus (COVID-19).
