  • Metro de Madrid: Crucial to the backbone of mobility
    Ignacio González Velayos, CEO, Metro de Madrid
    Sustainability is a principle applicable to any activity to ensure its performance in the future, and sustainability cannot be detached from the concept of mobility. Mobility is tied to a substantial consumption of energy resources and to a major impact on society in terms of cohesion, use of time and wellbeing. It is a highly significant source of greenhouse gas emissions and involves considerable expenditure on infrastructure, maintenance and operation. And, at the same time, mobility constitutes a basic need for the daily lives of millions of people.

    Maj Theander, Director of the Mobility Department, European Investment Bank

The European Investment Bank (EIB) places a strong emphasis on supporting public transport in urban areas and prioritises projects according to their efficiency and effectiveness in ensuring the sustainability of urban transport networks with the goal of improving citizens’ quality of life and supporting economic growth. This is why the EIB has decided to support the upgrade of metro networks in Stockholm and Warsaw.
