绿化欧洲投资银行

发自布鲁塞尔——过去四年以来,欧盟属下的欧洲投资银行已经向全世界的能源项目发放了480亿欧元(约合620亿美元)贷款。事实上,该银行对能源领域的贷款金额仅次于交通设施之后,远高于其他领域(而720亿欧元的总贷款组合也使其成为比世界银行更大的借贷人)。


在基于国际协议的政治解决方案停滞不前之时,如此大规模的投资有助于全球各国在减少温室气体排放方面取得实质性进展,但不幸的是,欧洲投资银行的贷款偏好和能源投资组合反而令问题更加恶化了。


2007年该行颁布了第一项能源政策——“向欧洲输送洁净能源:欧洲投资银行的新贡献”。自此之后,欧洲投资银行显著增加了向可再生能源方面的贷款,在2007~2010年间共计发放了130亿欧元贷款。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
