"Innovation at the EIB goes beyond the projects we support. As a global leader in the green and sustainable bond market, the EIB is clearly in a good position to lead the way in digital bond issuance on the blockchain . These digital bonds will help provide the bank with faster and more efficient access to alternative sources of finance to boost funding for projects around the world, " says EIB Vice-President Mourinho Félix.
