    Objectives

    Financing of investments in environmentally sustainable wastewater treatment and water supply facilities in Berlin, Germany.

    The investments in wastewater infrastructure will improve the quality of receiving waters and energy efficiency of the wastewater distribution system in Berlin. The project will help the promoter to comply with European legislation regarding the collection and treatment of urban wastewater (Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive 91/271/EEC).

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    The investments will contribute to the sustainable management of water and wastewater infrastructure with overall positive environmental impacts. Compliance with the EU Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC), Drinking Water Directive (98/83/EC), the Urban Wastewater Directive (91/271/EEC) and EU and national environmental legislation will be verified during appraisal.

    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project will be tendered in accordance with the relevant EU procurement legislation, 2014/25/EU, where applicable, 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 European Union, as and where required.
