    Environmental aspects

    Most of the projects of the Fund are expected not to fall under the EIA Directive 85/337/EC, as amended, in which case the projects would not be subject to an EIA. If an underlying investment is subject to an EIA, the fund manager will be required to obtain the non-technical summary of it, and, where relevant, written confirmation from the competent authority that the investment will not have any significant negative impact on sites of nature conservation.


    The Funds investment guidelines will be required to ensure that procurement procedures applied by the underlying investments financed by the fund are in line with the provisions of the relevant Directives.

    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).
