    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    The project activities do not fall under Annexes I and II of the EU Directive 2011/92/EC as amended, and are therefore not subject to mandatory environmental impact assessments. The proposed investments will take place inside buildings at existing RDI facilities.

    The Promoter has been assessed by EIB as being a private company not operating in the utilities sector and not having a status of a contracting entity, and thus is not subject to EU rules on public procurement.

    Disclaimer

    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).
