    The fund's operational guidelines provide for environmental and social due diligence of investee companies according to guidelines acceptable to the EIB.


    In terms of EIB procurement rules, the Fund is considered to be in the private sector, therefore it will be assessed whether competitive tender principles and good criteria of economy/efficiency are applicable to its investments, as well as that the main contracts have not been and/or will not be negotiated with discrimination based on the country of origin.
