Investments in fixed telecommunications projects (mainly civil works for urban underground copper/fibre roll-out) do not fall under Annex I and II of Directive 2011/92/EC as amended. The related works have typically limited residual environmental effects, as they are mainly carried out in urban areas alongside roads.
Procurement is expected to be in line with EIB guidelines for private sector projects. The Bank's services will verify details during the project due diligence.
