Environmental aspects

In the appraisal phase, the EIB will review the measures to be taken by the promoter in the decommissioning of old vehicles, as well as the design and manufacture of new vehicles to confirm that best available technologies are to be applied. Manufacturing of vehicles does not fall within the scope of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2014/52/EU amending the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU, therefore no EIA is required for this component.

Procurement

The EIB will require the project promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project will be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation, 2014/25/EU, Directive 92/13/EEC as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.
