Given the technical characteristics of the potential investments (mostly greenfield hydropower-generation projects) contemplated by the fund, many of them will require a full environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA). The fund has well developed environmental and social management system (ESMS), and will be required to integrate the Banks's latest requirements into the fund's procedures. The assessment of the environmental and social (E&S) impact and risks will be part of the standard due diligence process that the fund will carry out for every project. The capacity of the fund manager to assess and monitor E&S impact and risks of the individual investments and to implement the necessary requirements/mitigation in compliance with national law and in line with the principles and standards of relevant EU environmental legislation, as well as the bank's E&S standards, will be further assessed during appraisal.
The bank will require the fund to ensure that implementation of the projects they invest in has been and will be done in accordance with the bank's Guide to Procurement. Of particular relevance will be to ensure that for EIB-eligible investment, appropriate procedures have been followed with regard to the granting/obtaining of concessions (or other contractual arrangements) in line with EIB procurement standards, notably in terms of international publicity, traceability and non-discrimination of bidders.
