US companies invested more than 3.4 trillion euros in Europe last year, with many American companies operating for more than 100 years in the EU.
But that doesn’t paint the whole picture: the types of investments these companies make in Europe go beyond the numbers.
American companies are also committed to investing in people and communities
Along with creating jobs, developing infrastructure and driving innovation, American companies are also committed to investing in people and communities. From social and educational programs, to research and development, to environmental and health initiatives, these investments and their social impact are tangible examples of the positive role U.S. businesses play in Europe.
Invested in Europe: Our Stories was launched by the American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmCham EU) with the aim to shed light on the demonstrated commitment of American businesses to European citizens and communities.
Although most AmCham EU member companies are headquartered on the other side of the Atlantic, our member companies are almost entirely European – they live here, raise their families here, and are committed to its future.
