Environmental aspects

Each sub-operation under this programme loan will be subject to the same appraisal procedures as any other direct operation. The EIB's services will therefore ensure on a sub-operation basis that investments are implemented in compliance with the EU legislation and standard information will be posted on the EIB website.


The promoters of the projects to be financed under this programme loan will be private companies not operating in the Utilities sector and not having the status of a contracting authority, thus not subject to EU rules on public procurement.


Approved - 14/11/2019


Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
