The Circular Economy Workshop is organised by the European Investment Bank's InnovFin Advisory Service and will take place at EIB's headquarters in Luxembourg.

As part of an advisory mandate from the European Commission and the Government of Luxembourg, InnovFin Advisory has conducted a comprehensive review of the conditions for access to finance for circular economy investments. In this process, we actively engaged with many industry participants and consulted various financial sector players across EU. We also assessed EIB's financing tools and eligibility criteria with the help of our technical experts to see how EIB can better support and finance Circular Economy projects in the future, also in the context of the Investment Plan for Europe.

During this workshop, we will share with you our key findings and recommendations and offer you the opportunity to participate in discussions with key policy makers, business leaders and financial markets participants about the prospects and challenges presented by businesses moving to a more circular business model and the role of finance in accelerating this transition.


The workshop will start with a discussion around macroeconomic considerations and will look at how the European Commission's new Circular Economy Package fits within this context. It will follow with the presentation of a case studies, leading to a discussion about the main challenges faced when financing circular economy projects. The last panel of the workshop will discuss about how public and private funding can work together to accelerate circular economy transitions and we will be keen to open the floor to participants so that you can share your views and/or experiences.

This workshop will provide an excellent opportunity for investors and bankers to meet and learn more about new investment opportunities that the circular economy can offer and to become part of a growing network of finance professionals supporting this transition.

You are also invited to a network dinner on Wednesday, 9 December, which will take place on the EIB premises.
