The RDI activities included in the project would concern mainly software development and are expected to be carried out in existing facilities, so no particular negative impact on the environment is expected. An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is therefore not needed as per EIA Directive 2014/52/EU amending Directive 2011/92/EU. The full environmental details will however be investigated by the Bank's services during the project due diligence.
acast has been assessed by the EIB as being a private company not being subject to EU rules on public procurement or concessions.
