This operation is expected to produce environmental benefits by supporting measures which reduce energy consumption, and help to mitigate climate change. The works on the buildings to be rehabilitated are expected to have limited negative environmental impact during construction. Given the scale, location and nature of the sub-projects an environmental impact assessment (EIA), as defined under the EIA Directive 2014/52/EU amending the 2011/92/EU, is normally not required. The operation will comply with the requirements of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2010/31/EU.
The promoter is a public entity and therefore public procurement rules will apply, therefore it is required that all contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable national and EU procurement legislation (Directive 2014/24/EU and Directive 2007/66/EC), which may include publication in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) where appropriate.
