Projektträger – zwischengeschaltetes Finanzinstitut
The project concerns investments aiming to reduce the environmental and carbon footprint of the Promoter's cement manufacturing facilities, as well as its research, development and innovation (RDI) activities, for the period 2021-2023.
The project comprises the modernisation of the Promoter's production sites in France and Switzerland as well as its EU-based RDI activities related to cement products and production technologies in 2021-2023. As such, the project does not contribute to the increase of the Promoter's production capacity. The project's objective is to support the company's objective of reducing its CO2 footprint and other emissions and strengthen its competitiveness via investments in RDI activities. Investments include technologies for emission reduction, equipment for waste management/treatment, and equipment to improve efficiency and use of alternative fuels.

Some of the capex installations fall under Annex II of the EIA Directive 2014/52/EU amending Directive 2011/92/EU – mineral industry. The environmental impact assessment (EIA) procedure has not yet been launched, due to the early stage of the project. During due diligence, the Bank's services will assess the EIA procedure and related decisions. The project includes RDI activities that are not specifically mentioned under the EIA Directive and that will be carried out in existing facilities without changing their already authorised scope. The project will therefore not require an EIA under the directive 2014/52/EU amending directive 2011/92/EU.
The Promoter has been assessed by the EIB as being a private company not subject to EU rules on public procurement or concessions. However, if after the project appraisal, the EIB were to conclude that the Promoter is after all subject to EU public procurement legislation (Directive 2014/25/EU), then the Bank would require the Promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been and will be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directive 2014/25/EU, as well as Directive 92/13/EEC), as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the EU, as and where required.
