    Environmental aspects

    Due to their characteristics, the majority of the project schemes fall under Annex II of the EIA Directive 85/337/ECC as subsequently amended.

    The Promoter is a contracting entity that falls under the Utilities Directive 2004/17/EC and 2004/18/EC. Based on previous Bank’s experience, the Promoter applies procurement procedures that are in line with the Directive.
