In numbers

In 2020, BIO’s funding supported 117,462 jobs through direct investments and an additional 158,432 through indirect investments. Altogether, they would further support more than 10 M indirect jobs, as estimated through JIM.

For direct investments, job creation reached 3,210 jobs in 2020.

Of all the BIO projects approved in 2021, 16 out of 21 qualified for the 2X Challenge – to which BIO contributed over EUR 75 M in new investment commitments over the year.

In 2020, BIO’s direct and indirect renewable energy supply corresponded to a total of 3,730,000 tonnes of CO2e avoided, which is equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions of 803,700 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles driven for one year.
