Abstract

The Investment Plan for Europe was announced as a response to the downturn in intra-European investment following the 2008 global financial crisis; it is not focused on climate-related investment per se but rather on enhancing regional development and investment levels in Europe. This paper argues that the financial pillar (being the European Fund for Strategic Investment aka EFSI or the ‘Juncker Fund’) and the facilitative pillar (being the European Investment Advisory Hub or EIAH) of the Investment Plan could both be improved to facilitate increased public-private climate-related investment. In so doing, Europe’s internal investment ambitions and also international leadership of Paris Agreement goals could be enhanced.
