Framework Operation #14 for Sustainability Guarantee


This Framework Operation supports Sub-Projects that in turn target to finance the green and sustainable transformation of the European economy. Eligibility criteria related with renewable energy, green and energy efficiency in buildings and low and zero emission mobility together with the green/ sustainable Enterprise criteria are expected to be the most relevant for the majority of the Sub-Projects under this Framework Operation. The InvestEU Sustainability Guarantee Product is the first pan-European guarantee product in support of the green transition of small enterprises and individuals. It will expand the experience of financial intermediaries in using the EIF Guarantee Products towards this key EU priority. Financial intermediaries will be able to start their activity in this domain, or to further develop their offer to green investments - either by developing new products in this area, or expanding existing products to other green activities which they may not have supported in the past. In addition, all the support activities foreseen alongside the guarantee will create awareness of green financing standards and definitions aligned with the key EU regulatory framework: the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Finance.

Links and documents

Framework Operations (“FO”) represent envelopes under which the Implementing Partner then can add sub-projects. The FO is published when the first sub-project is signed. The field “Project locations” references the possible geographical location of sub-projects that can be signed under the FO. It does not mean that for each of the Member State listed a signed sub-project exists.
