    Argentina and the EIB

    Since 1994, our operations in Argentina have mitigated climate change and improved people’s lives through better urban transport, improved water and sanitation services and solid waste management.

    Argentina is the second largest recipient of EIB finance in Latin America. Through our financing of strategic investments, we are committed to supporting sustainable investments in the country.

    In Argentina, we have focused on:

    Climate action and energy

    We have invested in sustainable infrastructure to tackle climate change in Argentina. Our efforts include:

    • Water and sanitation projects: Our investments have helped to improve water and wastewater infrastructure in Buenos Aires. By increasing access to sanitation and the reuse of biogas, we aim to improve public health, especially for low-income and vulnerable groups and protect the environment by reducing harmful chemical discharges.
    • Solid waste management: We have supported a waste management program in the Jujuy region to improve the collection, treatment and disposal of municipal solid waste. This program aims to manage waste sustainably and cut greenhouse gases. It has also created employment opportunities for female waste pickers, economically empowering them to make a better life for themselves and their families.
    • Flood protection: Through a flood protection loan, we have helped to protect people against floods in the Buenos Aires province. The project includes the construction of dikes, flood plains and the restoration of bridges along the river.
    Urban development

    We have supported the modernisation of the Buenos Aires metro, which has improved public transit and contributed to the reduction of greenhouse emissions from vehicles. This project includes signalling system renewals, new power-supply systems, ventilation system upgrades, extra train stock, depot refurbishments and major station redesigns.


    Together with Team Europe, we have supported the purchase of COVID-19 vaccines and the deployment of vaccination campaigns across Argentina, thereby reducing the economic impact of the pandemic and strengthening the country’s resilience to future health challenges.
