Rely­ing on the EIB Online Sur­vey on Cli­ma­te Inno­va­tions, we inves­ti­ga­te the dif­fe­rent cli­ma­te inno­va­tions Euro­pean firms are curr­ent­ly using, their moti­va­tions and chal­lenges, and their views on cur­rent regu­la­to­ry frame­works. The ana­ly­sis con­firms that there’s a strong link bet­ween cli­ma­te inno­va­ti­on and firm per­for­mance, but also that firms suf­fer from the low avai­la­bi­li­ty of finan­ce. To crea­te more suc­cessful firms in the cli­ma­te sec­tor, Euro­pean poli­cy­ma­kers should streng­then poli­ci­es that redu­ce regu­la­to­ry uncer­tain­ty and work actively to impro­ve access to finan­ce con­di­ti­ons, in par­ti­cu­lar for start-ups.
