The schemes implemented under the framework loan should have an overall positive impact on the environment, by reducing energy consumption, promoting sustainable urban development, and reducing emissions from car use by improving the road network and favouring urban public transport. Some of the schemes may, however, fall under Annex I or Annex II of Directive 2011/92/EU, or be located in areas forming part of the Natura 2000 network (falling under Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC or Birds Directive 79/409/EEC). The Bank will assess the promoters' capacity and procedures to ensure compliance with national and European environmental and biodiversity regulations.
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 or 2004/17/EC and Dir. 2007/66/EC (amending Directives 1989/665/EEC and 1992/13/EEC)), with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.
