Through its flagship Environmental Technologies Action Plan, the European Commission will commit to €2,143 billion of co-financing of projects in the eco-innovation area. Download presentation
As part of its annual funding commitment, the European Investment Bank has committed to lend €10,25 billion in co-financing to renewable energy-based projects in 2010.
To deliver efficiently high-quality European funding schemes and initiatives in these areas, the European Commission has set up the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) to manage on its behalf four projects: Intelligent Energy - Europe (The Power to Innovate); Marco Polo (New Ways to a Green Horizon); Enterprise Europe Network (Business Support on Your Doorstep) and Eco-Innovation (When Business Meets the Environment).

Although the United Nations is not directly involved in funding the transition to a low-carbon economy, the global deal that will emerge from the UNFCCC talks in Copenhagen will have a direct bearing on the economic framework in which eco-innovation will be pursued on a global basis.
