On 9 February 2023, CINEA organised the second Info Day of the public sector loan facility of the Just Transition Mechanism in collaboration with the Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission (DG REGIO) and the European Investment Bank (EIB). The Info Day outlined the main features of the facility and will explain in further detail how to receive the available financing. It also built on the lessons learnt from the first proposals received under the facility and provide best practices and tips on preparing a successful proposal. The Info Day was interactive and participants were invited to contribute and ask questions via sli.do (#JTMPSLF2023).
The public sector loan facility is the third pillar of the Just Transition Mechanism, a key tool to ensure that the transition towards a climate-neutral economy happens in a fair way, leaving no one behind. The facility supports projects addressing social, environmental and economic challenges deriving from the transition to the Union’s climate target objectives and will mobilise investments with the support of the European Investment Bank (EIB). EIB loans (up to EUR 10 billion) and EU grants (up to EUR 1.5 billion) will help public sector entities in the most affected regions to meet their development needs in the transition towards a climate-neutral economy.
Any public sector entity wishing to finance a project located in or benefitting a just transition territory may submit a proposal through the call for proposals published on 19 July 2022. For more detailed information about the call for proposals, please visit the call page or watch the recording of the first Info Day.
