Environmental aspects

As a Member State, Poland has the obligation of following EU relevant rules regarding the environmental impact of projects (namely SEA, EIA and Habitat/Natura 2000 Directives). The Bank’s appraisal will focus on the promoter’s environmental management capacity and on the verification of the correct application of these Directives, including undertaking of SEA/EIAs and assessment of requirements of the Habitat and Bird Directive where appropriate; all the relevant project’s key documents will be published in line with the Bank’s procedures.

Non Technical Summary (NTS) of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA):


EU Directives on procurement (2004/18/EC and 2004/17/EC) have been transposed into the national Polish legislation. Tenders will be organised in compliance with EU requirements, with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal for projects above thresholds. Application of EU procedures by the Polish authorities for the tender of services, supplies and civil works will be reviewed by the Bank’s services during appraisal.
