CEE Bankwatch Network is an environmental network with 16 member groups from 14 Central and Eastern European countries and more than 20 years of experience in transforming public finance and environmental and climate policies relevant to the CEE region and the European Union. Bankwatch has succeeded in pushing Europe’s key financial enablers of climate change to halt investments in coal. In the last few years, Bankwatch has played a central role in shaping European policies towards a just transition of coal regions across Central and Eastern Europe.
