The individual schemes to be financed will typically be small and are expected to have limited negative environmental impacts. However, some projects may fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive, requiring a screening decision by the competent authority on the need to carry out an EIA. The Bank will require that under the proposed facility the financial intermediary finances projects that are in compliance with national law and with the principles of EU environmental laws, with particular reference to impacts on biodiversity and cumulative impacts.
The Bank will require the financial intermediary to ensure that, where applicable, procurement procedures conducted by the promoters of the sub-projects are in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement and the relevant applicable EU public procurement rules.
