    Environmental aspects

    As a public enterprise of a Member State, GTP is obliged to follow the relevant EU legislation regarding the environmental impact of projects (namely SEA, EIA and Habitat/Natura 2000 Directives) and accordingly the Promoter will be required to implement all the project components in compliance with the relevant legislation.

    The Promoter is subject to and follows public procurement rules according to EU regulations, in particular EU procurement Directives (2004/18/EC and 2004/17/EC). Tenders shall be organised in compliance with EU requirements, with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal for components above thresholds.


    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
