About us

Environmental Investment Centre (EIC) is a State Agency, and our mission is to bring together market needs and investment possibilities for the environmental projects. We are designing aid schemes, launching calls for applications, supervising the use of public money, implementing strategical projects by ourselves and offering pro-active consultancy for EU direct funds.

KIK kollektiiv

EIC was founded in 2000, and during this time we have been the central funder of environmental projects in Estonia. With the support of various sources of financing, we have helped to implement the activities in the scope of several ministries. With our help, more than 20,000 environmental projects have been carried out with a total of more than EUR 2 billion in grants.

Alongside our roles as grant mediators and supervisors, together with our good partners, we have set up and run projects to deliver the necessary practical actions and bring in extra funds to meet Estonia’s environmental and climate goals.

EIC belongs to the administration area of the Ministry of the Climate.

Strategic objectives and target activities

Based on its vision, the EIC’s activities could be divided into three strategic directions of development, the effectiveness of which can be measured and which have a clear cause-and-effect connection between the EIC’s contribution and the result.
