    Environmental aspects

    Austria, as an Member State, is obliged to follow the relevant EU rules in relation to the environmental impact of projects (namely Strategic Environmental Assessment, Environmental Impact Assessment and Habitat/Natura 2000 Directives). The Bank’s appraisal will primarily focus on the promoter’s environmental management capacity and on the verification of the correct application of these Directives, including undertaking of SEA/EIAs and an assessment of the requirements of the Habitat and Bird Directive where appropriate. The project’s relevant key documents will be published in line with the Bank’s procedures.


    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Dir 2004/18/EC, 2004/17/EC or Dir. 2007/66/EC), with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.
