    Environmental aspects

    Based on their technical characteristics, the project schemes are not likely to require environmental impact assessments. The anticipated typical impact is minor, mainly temporary in nature, related to installation works as well as waste management, and can usually be well managed by appropriate measures taken by the company implementing the project, also according to European standards (ISO 14001).


    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directives 2004/18/EC and/or 2004/17/EC as well as Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC) as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.
